Critical risks are those that have the potential to cause serious injury or fatality, such as working at heights, confined spaces, electrical hazards, and moving equipment. We want to empower our employees and contractors to identify, assess, and control these risks before they become incidents.

After each session, we will give a written quiz to all the employees, foremen and supervisors, and the best performers will be rewarded by the Top Management at the Ross CIF closing ceremony, which will take place on Monday 16 October 2023 at DCF.

We are also company supporters of the lighthouse club and are starting to roll out all the resources that have been offered to us and our staff.

Here at Glebe Builders in Donegal, over the last number of years we have the goal of improving Health & Safety within our Company. We are delighted to be recently awarded our safety T Cert and for the second year in a row we have gone up in grade.


For the  month of October, we will have a strong emphasis of Health safety & wellbeing within the Company.

We have advised all staff of makeitvisible campaign and the resources that are free and available to them.

We also will increases our toolbox talks focusing on the weekly topics.

Most of our projects are residential,  we have signed up for the webinar on the 12/10 and look forward to learning from the leading developers in Ireland.



Here at Glebe Builders we are also trying to improve on our standards and welcome the opportunity to become a partner.

For Construction Safety Week we are taking an interactive approach with our workers discussing mental health and critical risks which apply to our company.


We have reached out to the lighthouse club and we hope to catch them on some of our sites during their Ireland Tour. Crews on site have been given a TBT to make them aware of the service that the lighthouse club provides.


We will be having interactive Toolbox Talks/ discussions about the critical risks affecting our crews over the next month. We hope that using the feedback received from these discussions can be used in a proactive manner to protect the health and safety of our workers.


The topics will be:

Safe Access / Egress

Working Near Water

Mobile Plant

Working at Height

High Voltage Electricity

Safe Loading and Lifting Operations


Thank you for the use of your partner logo for our promotional material.  We will put a blog on our website and link to our LinkedIn page and google business page.  We will also deliver toolbox talks on critical risks at site visits this month.

We will be implementing our new fully integrated concrete skip cleaning system on site. Concrete skips are loaded onto the system and cleaned automatically with the operator kept at a safe distance in a sealed cab.  During the cleaning process the slurry is separated into liquid and solids and reconstituted. Good for the environment also!

This system forms another automated part of our work ethic where our concrete pump wash out system which was implemented during the summer allows for pumps and booms to be cleaned out without operators being required to take a wash lance in their hand. Again the spill wastes is captured, separated and reconstituted without the necessity of an operator working in close proximity.

We are about to launch  Online induction modules for specialised lifting equipment, such as glass vacuum lifters, glazing robots, pick and carry cranes, and counterbalance beams. Over the years we have learnt a few things and in conjunction with many of our clients and their feedback, found that operators manuals, quite often are used as the go-to when something goes wrong – that’s too late! and we aim to change that!

As technology improves it is no longer the case that someone versed in Vacuum lifters can use safely all the variations of Glass Vacuum lifters safely and effectively. Quite simply put not all Vacuum lifters are created equal! And that’s the same for Counterbalance beams, Glazing robots and just about everything you can think of.


We plan to do – On site presentations on the importance of specialised lifting equipment induction

– Display CIF Posters and Material on all sites

– Carry out Weekly Tool box talks on sites

– Coffee Mornings

– Directors site visits and reinforce our safety commitments.

We will deliver a programme of #CIFSafety23 talks in addition to our standard weekly toolbox talks on all sites.

Raise awareness for each of the topics of Construction Safety Month through internal communications, toolbox talks, promotional materials, posters, etc

Our current critical risk is  Safe access and egress to the work locations within the site alongside Mobile site Plant and Equipment.


We will be carrying out toolbox talks to highlight the risks and also inform the workers to: – use pedestrian access ways that are set up as safe access routes; ensure they have Hi-vis workwear; refrain from using mobile phones whist onsite.

We will also instruct our Mobile plant & equipment operators to be vigilant for pedestrian access ways and not be using radios or mobile phones whist operating plant.

  • APC will conduct on-site safety talks at our construction sites, with a specific focus on critical risks. These talks will address key safety issues, such as fall protection, machinery operation, hasard recognition, and more. These talks will not only educate our workforce but also give them an opportunity to ask questions and share their concerns.
  • Safety Audits: Throughout the month, APC will conduct comprehensive safety audits at our construction sites. These audits will help identify areas for improvement and ensure that our safety protocols are being followed correctly.
  • Safety Promotions: APC will launch safety promotion campaigns, such as safety posters, newsletters, and reminders, to keep safety at the forefront of everyone’s minds. These materials will reinforce our commitment to safety and provide quick reminders of best practices.
  • Employee Feedback: APC will actively seek feedback from our employees about safety concerns and suggestions for improvement. This feedback will be valuable in making necessary adjustments to our safety policies and procedures.
  • Recognition and Rewards: To incentivise a strong safety culture, APC will establish a system to recognise and reward individuals and teams that excel in safety performance. This recognition can take the form of awards, certificates, or other incentives.

During Construction Safety Month, we are reminded about the significance of safety, health, and welfare at work.

To mark World Mental Health Day, we rolled out a dedicated mental health toolbox talk. Mental Health and Wellbeing is now a critical part of the construction industry’s safety culture. In an industry known for its resilience and dedication, it’s crucial that we also prioritise the wellbeing of our construction workers and colleagues.

Each week at Colin Burke Electrical, our Health and Safety Officers will focus on Construction Safety Month focus topics. One of these will be working at heights which remains the leading cause of fatalities and major injuries within the construction sector.

Toolbox talks will continue throughout the month of October across our live sites.

Poster campaigns and email communications will also be paramount in spreading the message of Construction Safety Month to our colleagues.

  • Ensure that senior management actively participates in safety initiatives and visibly demonstrates a commitment to safety.
  • Allocate necessary resources to support safety programs and initiatives.
  • Train employees to recognize electrical hazards, including exposed wires, overloaded circuits, and damaged equipment.

For Safety Month this year we have organised a variety of coaching sessions with our employees focusing on recognising critical risks within our industry. We have invited other speakers to visit our sites to carry out Training sessions on how to be aware and manage risks on site.

We are also holding various competitions regarding safety standards with all our personnel on the various Sites.

Supporting the CIF with their safety training and awareness.

We have been a partner of CIF previously and we intend to educate our audience with construction safety tips and information!

We have a team bonding day, with wellness and mental health activities. Training courses for the guys on site and up-skilling on health and safety for our office based team.
