Construction phase plan
A construction phase health and safety plan is the most important strategic management tool in safeguarding health and safety on site. To be effective the plan must be developed as construction work proceeds. NHBC's Construction Phase Plan is designed to assist the principal contractor in the day-to-day management of all health and safety issues throughout the construction process.
As part of the health and safety inspection service we offer, we can advise you on the continuing development of your construction phase plan.
An NHBC plan is simple and easy to understand. Each section contains clear, concise guidance on to how to manage health and safety on site.
By compiling and controlling site health and safety information in a single, readily accessible source, the plan makes it easier for you to ensure your site is a safer place to work.
Below are examples of some of the items that are included in the plan:
- Risk assessments. These are construction specific, covering normal everyday site activity such as management of site traffic. Risks are identified and required precautions are outlined.
- Inspection registers. These are for recording competence and training of operatives employed on your site.
- Site arrangements. As the plan evolves, site-specific arrangements are developed and recorded, including security, traffic management, site rules and welfare arrangements.
- Pre-construction issues. The plan addresses issues identified by the CDM Co-ordinator during the pre-construction phase.
