SAFE OPERATING RULES AND PRACTICES

Safe operating rules and practices are to be established during the planning meeting at the start of the job as dictated by the hazards inherent in the nature of the work, federal and state Safety and Health Regulations, company policies, and owner and other regulatory agency requirements. Other safety rules may have to be added as the work progresses due to changed conditions, new methods, new equipment, and as an outgrowth of accident experience.

General safe operating rules and practices apply to all employees, regardless of the nature of their duties. These rules are to be explained to each new hire during indoctrination and must be reemphasized at toolbox meetings and in day-to-day contacts. These are minimum requirements, and are to be rigidly enforced. Examples of general rules follow:

Wear personal protective equipment as required.

Wear suitable shoes and work clothes in good repair

Lift correctly. Get help on the heavy loads.

Do not smoke in prohibited areas.

Avoid off-balanced positions when pulling, pushing, or prying, especially at heights

Report all injuries promptly, even though minor in nature,

Keep alert around moving equipment

Always inspect ladders prior to use and use ladders correctly.

Always follow the approved lock and tag procedures.

Operate equipment and vehicles only if authorized

Correct unsafe conditions as noted, or if you can't correct them, call them to the attention of your foreman immediately.

Keep tools and materials away from the edge of scaffolds or floor openings where they can be knocked off on employees working below.

Be considerate of the welfare of fellow employees. Do not distract their attention or engage in horseplay.

Replace all guards removed for servicing or other reasons,

Pressure cylinders should be used and stored in an upright position and secured against accidental tipping.

Keep all stairways, ladders, ramps, scaffold platforms, walkways and work areas free from loose materials and trash.

Riding on loads, hooks and hoists is prohibited.

Always wear eye protection when grinding, drilling, burning, or performing any operation which may produce flying particles or objects.

Working at a construction site is one of the most dangerous occupations. Although every construction worker is trained in basic safety precautions for handling dangerous materials, proper machine operation, and fundamental hazard recognition, accidents still occur. Each year, hundreds of thousands of workers are killed or injured in construction site accidents. Fortunately there are many legal professionals who will stand up for you and fight to see you justly compensated for your pain and suffering. It takes a special breed of attorney to understand not only the complicated legal processes surrounding construction site injuries, but also the compassion and dedication needed to provide guidance through these difficult times.
