Managing Safety on Multi-Employer Work Sites

On December 13th The American Society of Safety Professionals reported that "construction sites are busy places. On any given day, you’ll find laborers, carpenters, electricians, plumbers, pipefitters, iron workers and others performing tasks across a potentially vast work site. With so many workers, often from different employers, performing potentially hazardous tasks, how can you ensure everyone is operating safely and understands their responsibilities to identify and mitigate those hazards?...ANSI/ASSP A10.33-2020 voluntary consensus standard sets safety and health program requirements for multi-employer projects, including establishing roles and responsibilities for all involved, and confirming that each team member knows how to address hazards they may encounter".

Protecting the Public From Construction Hazards

On December 16th The American Society of Safety Professionals reported that "construction safety goes beyond protecting workers. You also have to protect the public. Construction projects happen in different environments, and you have to consider the people and property in those environments and how the work may impact them...ANSI/ASSP A10.34-2021 standard provides best practices for protecting the public on or adjacent to construction sites, and identifies different construction hazards that can endanger the people, property and environment surrounding the job site".
