Construction Site Survival Guide
We care about your safety. That’s why, whether you’re a client, architect, engineer, subcontractor partner, or a member of the community, when you visit one of our jobsites, you can expect to receive a safety orientation from a member of the project team.
During your safety orientation, you will receive the appropriate protective equipment to wear onsite. In addition, we’ll ask you to follow these safety guidelines:
- Stay with your designated guide at all times.
- Keep your hard hat on at all times and wear any additional personal protective equipment that was provided to you.
- Keep a safe distance from the perimeter of the building; do not lean or rest against any handrail or guardrail systems.
- Watch where you walk! Be cautious of slick or wet surfaces and tripping hazards.
- Do not cross any barricades, yellow caution tape, or red danger tape.
- Be aware of overhead hazards, such as crane loads, scaffold systems, or people on ladders.
- Be aware of moving equipment, such as trucks, forklifts, and backhoes. Equipment operators may have difficulty seeing you.
- Do not try to climb ladders or scaffold systems without permission. Maintain a three–point contact while climbing ladders–one person at a time, please!
- Keep your eyes open! Pay attention to your surroundings and watch your step.
- While these rules may seem strict, we ask you to follow them because, at the end of your visit, the only mark we want you to leave with is a better understanding of who we are and the exciting work that we do.
