Focus on Critical Risks
Construction Safety Month 2023 – #CIFSafety23
The theme of Construction Safety Month 2023 is Focus on Critical Risk. #cifsafety23 #criticalrisk
As a contractor, depending on your sector, you will encounter different critical risks in your work. For example, in civil engineering, mobile plant movement is a vital safety consideration, for scaffolders, safety working at height is paramount.
Critical Risk: Activities we undertake frequently that, if not controlled, could lead to significant injury or fatality.
This safety month, we are asking construction companies and workers of all sectors to examine fundamental safety questions such as:
Do you know your critical risks?
Have you controls in place to manage these risks?
Are your colleagues aware of these risks?
Are the controls in place to protect safety adequate?
As we get ready for Construction Safety Month 2023, stay tuned for valuable resources, partner logos and insights.
