Daily Safety Analysis
The Employee Daily Safety Analysis was developed recently by the UTCA Safety Committee to assist personnel of member firms in the recognition of the importance of Safety in the construction industry. Dan Neville, UTCA's director of safety, assisted the committee in the development of this material. We urge company project supervisors and foremen to utilize the Analysis on a daily basis whenever possible. To be most effective, it is suggested that the material be used at the start of a project or new task and then used daily at the beginning and end of each shift as a constant reminder of all the hazards surrounding the task until final completion of the project. Through the use of this construction safety tool, supervisors can help all employees recognize and eliminate potential jobsite hazards. The material can also be a valuable asset in training new employees about safety at a particular project. The best approach is to utilize the Analysis to examine the hazards that a work crew may face on a job site on a daily basis and then help everyone focus on specific tasks to be performed on that day. Such conditions may include fall exposures, confined space areas, excavation activities, electrical hazards and operation of machines as well as others. It would be of value for those who will utilize the Analysis to conduct a training program for supervisors in the use of the publication. In turn, your supervisors can use the material to train employees in the use of the Analysis. Such a process will assist in focusing additional attention to jobsite safety. This Analysis does not replace a Project or Job Hazard Analysis or other safety management procedures that should be conducted on an entire project. This material should be incorporated as a daily or weekly tool akin to a daily toolbox talk. The Employee Daily Safety Analysis is available from UTCA in English, Portuguese and Spanish versions to increase utilization.
