  1. Action Required
  2. Pre-Construction Information
  3. General
  4. Removal of existing windows
  5. Include items within H and S file
  6. First Operation

C. Hazard

  1. Construction Traffic and pedestrians. Visitors or outsource service providers to and from site and staffing routines
  2. Live site – danger to site/facility.
  3. Lifting (Muscular)
  4. Cutting
  5. Electrocution
  6. Lifting (muscular)
  7. Working at heights, Falls falling materials, lifting, maintenance, hot works
  8. Escape and fire engine access
  9. Working at height and asbestos exposure

D. Design Control Measures Taken

  1. Isolate and secure construction route. Develop and make route into worksite area; use proper safety/warning signage & posters for equipment, plant, and vehicle routes. Properly maintain and safeguard all site areas within Heras fencing and proper safety and warning signage/posters temporary route for staff to be developed
  2. Isolate and secure construction route. Use a trained banks person
  3. Use good manual handling techniques
  4. Use appropriate PPE equipment / trained operatives
  5. Use 110V power equipment, devices on-work site only
  6. Check and evaluate appropriately all equipment before use
  7. Use good manual handling techniques
  8. Provision and maintain scaffold/edge protection. Provide fall arrest harness. Wear PPE. Provide hoists
  9. Safe high-level working practices, undertaken by specialist contractors
  10. Safety design and procedures. Assembly point
  11. Safe get entry to capability by using Design and correct removal and disposal of asbestos-contained material

Red Lists: 

Hazardous procedures, products and processes that have been eliminated from the project where possible

  • Lack of adequate pre-construction information, e.g. 
  • Asbestos surveys, 
  • Geological/ground surveys, 
  • Obstructions, 
  • Services, 
  • Ground contamination etc. 
  1. Hand scrabbling of concrete (‘stop ends’, etc.)
  2. Demolition by hand-held breakers of the top sections of concrete piles (pile cropping techniques are available)
  3. The specification of fragile roof lights and roofing assemblies
  4. Processes giving rise to large quantities of dust (dry cutting, blasting etc.) 
  5. On-site spraying of harmful substances
  6. The specification of structural steelwork which is not purposely designed to accommodate safety nets
  7. Designing roof-mounted services requiring access (for maintenance, etc.), without provision for safe access (e.g., barriers).
  8. Glazing that cannot be accessed Safely, all glazing should be anticipated as requiring cleaning and replacement, so a safe system of access is essential.
  9. Entrances, floors, ramps, stairs and escalators etc. are not specifically designed to avoid slips and trips during use and maintenance, including the effect of rainwater and spillages.
  10. Design of environments involving adverse lighting, noise, vibration, temperature, wetness, humidity and draughts or chemical and/or biological conditions during use and maintenance operations. 
  11. Designs of structures that do not allow for fire containment during construction  

Amber Lists: 

Products, processes and procedures to be eliminated or reduced as far as possible and only specified/allowed if unavoidable. Including amber items would always lead to the provision of information to the Principal Contractor.  
  1. Internal manholes/inspection chambers in circulation areas
  2. External manholes in heavily used vehicle access zones
  3. The specification of “lip” details (i.e. trip hazards) at the tops of pre-cast concrete staircases
  4. The specification of shallow steps (i.e. risers) in external paved areas
  5. The specification of heavy building blocks i.e. those weighing > 20kgs
  6. Large and heavy glass panels
  7. The chasing out of concrete/brick/block work walls or floors for the installation of services
  8. The specification of heavy lintels (the use of slim metal or hollow concrete lintels being alternatives)
  9. The specification of solvent-based paints and thinners, or isocyanates, particularly for use in confined areas
  10. Specification of curtain wall or panel systems without provision for the tying (or raking) of scaffolds
  11. Specification of block work walls >3.5 meters high using retarded mortar mixes.

Green Lists: 

Products, processes and procedures to be positively encouraged. 
  1. Adequate access for construction vehicles to minimize reversing requirements (one-way systems and turning radii)
  2. Provision of adequate access and headroom for maintenance in plant rooms, and adequate provision for replacing heavy components
  3. Thoughtful location of mechanical/electrical equipment, light fittings, security devices etc. to facilitate access and away from crowded areas
  4. The specification of concrete products with pre-cast fixings to avoid drilling
  5. Specify half board sizes for plasterboard sheets to make handling easier
  6. Early installation of permanent means of access, and prefabricated staircases with handrails
  7. The provision of edge protection at permanent works where there is a foreseeable risk of falls after handover
  8. Practical and safe methods of window cleaning (e.g., from the inside)
  9. Appointment of a Temporary Work Coordinator (BS 5975)
  10. Off-site timber treatment if Plant Preservative Agent (PPA)- and Chromium, Copper, and Arsenic (CCA)-based preservatives are used (Boron or copper salts can be used for cut ends on site). 
  11. Off-site fabrication and prefabricated elements to minimize on-site hazards.
  12. Encourage the use of engineering controls to minimize the use of Personal Protective Equipment
