Vehicle Safety and PPE on the Go
Point of Beginning, a publication for surveyors, has released an article about vehicle safety. While the article has a section about PPE in a vehicle for a surveyor, the overall thrust of the article is general. Having PPE available in vehicles is important for employees who are on the go. The article says:
While conducting safety audits on construction jobsites in the past year, I encountered multiple surveyors on the same site on several occasions. Every vehicle was short on basic items such as vests. Of course, I heard many excuses such as, I didnt know I would need my vest today, No one told me this was a hard hat jobsite, or my favorite, I didnt know they had a safety inspector for this jobsite. Your crew needs to be prepared every time they leave the office for anything they might encounter. How many times have you had to redirect a crew during the day because a client called with an emergency?
