PROJECT SAFETY PLAN
For each construction activity, all identified
hazards and corrective actions are listed on the back
of the CAS sheet. The safety plan (fig. 2-29) lists the
hazards and corrective action from the back of the
CAS sheets. A cover sheet (fig. 2-30) for the safety
plan summarizes the training and equipment required
for review by the chain of command. The project
safety plan must be posted on the jobsite. A daily
jobsite safety inspection (fig. 2-31) is performed by
safety office personnel.
STAND-UP SAFETY LECTURES
The key to mishap prevention is personnel
awareness. Personnel awareness is the purpose of the
daily stand-up safety lecture. Use the form in figure
2-32 to document the daily stand-up lectures. It is not
enough to anticipate the hazard and provide protective
equipment. The crew leader must ensure that the crew
is properly trained and motivated to use the equipment
properly. If the corrective action includes specific
procedures or methods, the crew leader must make
sure those procedures are followed every time. Never
let a member of your crew get lackadaisical! Make
