The legally obligatory construction site safety includes all measures that are carried out to protect against accidents at work or occupational diseases on the construction site.
As part of our advice on construction site safety, we support construction companies in all aspects of occupational safety, especially in developing an occupational safety organization that is adapted to the respective construction project. As a rule, this is also linked to the construction site-specific questions about environmental protection. We take over monitoring and internal coordination tasks on the construction site as Health-Safety-Environmental Managers (HSE).
With regard to possible mutual hazards between several companies on a construction site, the main legal basis is the construction site ordinance (BauStellV). On behalf of the client, we take on the role of safety and health protection coordinator (SiGeKo) and determine possible mutual hazards during the planning of the construction measures, for which we finally set up suitable protective measures. These include the avoidance of local simultaneity, special construction site facilities for the physical separation of trades, protective facilities used jointly by all companies as higher-level construction site facilities and the definition of special safety standards for particularly dangerous work.
As the safety coordinator, we advise the planning team on structural safety equipment and ensure that the necessary maintenance, repair and testing activities can be carried out safely during subsequent operation of the building or system.
During the execution of the construction work, we ensure on behalf of the client that the work of the various contractors is implemented in accordance with the results of the safety-related planning activities and that the companies involved in the construction observe the basic requirements for occupational safety according to § 4 ArbSchG for their activities. We also guarantee that for deviations from the planned construction process that frequently occur on construction sites, alternative solutions that meet the requirement for safe working are developed and applied.
In addition to the position of the safety and health protection coordinator, we also advise on DGUV rule 101-004 – contaminated areas. Contaminated areas are locations, structures, objects, soil, water, air and the like that are contaminated with hazardous substances or biological agents beyond a basic level that is harmless to health. Through our work, we ensure that companies achieve the protection goals required by accident prevention regulations.
