Hazard Assessment Checklist for Construction Industry

Created by: SafetyCulture Staff | Industry: General | Downloads: 107

The construction industry accounts numerous fatalities caused by the “Fatal Four” - falls, struck by object, electrocution, and caught between objects. These hazards were responsible for more than half of construction workers’ deaths. Use this template before commencing work on a construction project. Determine the hazards that may arise from the work activity to be performed. Use iAuditor to record significant data of detected risks like presence of electrical tools, an ongoing excavation activity, use of scaffolds and ladders, and handling of deadly substances and materials.
