Hello everyone！We here are Office restoration Dot.Com. website.
Mainly at Ikebukuro, in all over Kanto area, we are executing construction work professionally of 「Interior decorative finishing work」「Recovery and restoration work」.
This time, changing our usual preference, we are explaining the theme of,
What is safety patrol? What is being done, and watched
Due to a matter of convenience of the theme, please also take attention as we may also touch some points on whole construction work including other than interior decorative work roughly.
After brief explanation on safety patrol, we are also going on explaining where to be watched and executed.
1 What is safety patrol?
2 What kind of points are to be checked?
2.1 Checking out tools and the like, the situation of checking
2.2 If work operation procedure is suitably set, and if it is being executed accordingly
2.3 If work operation area and work operation range safety are kept, and its method of keeping safety is suitable?
2.4 Ancillary to above, whether putting work site in order and cleaning work site or so are executed or not?
What is safety patrol?
Safety patrol is, in order to maintain work site safety, each work site contractor personnel in charge actually is patrolling(rounding) , and checking if problem is occurring safety wise.
As for workers at work site, there also may be abbreviation called it as「An pato(in Japanese)」or so.
(There is a case of safety personnel in charge at a general construction contractor doing by own self too)
When a relative work site starts its actual work, the general contractor reveal and examine every can-happen dangers. From that, we will request each work site contractor to do site work operation.
However, at work sites where can often occur different methods or unthinkable aspects, in encountering every certain pose(or before encountering it), we may request patrolling again by considering each contractor’s point of view, and checking if its maintaining safety standards is becoming the safest and prompt method.
Therefore, by labeling as safety patrol, a general contractor requests each site contractor to go to see「In present work site situation, if safety standard decided as 〇〇 should be satisfying, or if there should be improving points」and also by maintaining work site safety, thus we are keeping construction work quality.
What kind of points are to be checked?
As to what kind of points are being checked, if we directly state the conclusion,
It differs according to each work progress situation, or each work contractor.
However, as it is「safety patrol」, we should go on checking all of the points relating safety.
・Situation of examining tools or so, and checking
・If work operation procedure is being suitably arranged, or is duly executed
・If work operation place or work operation range is kept safely, or if the method of maintaining safety is suitable?
・Ancillary to above, if putting site in order, cleaning site is executed?
Checking above these items or so from general work contractor to each work contractor’s supervisor.
Usually, as to safety patrol, general work contractor let each work contractor make points to check, and each work contractor’s supervisor does its evaluation. If there is an awful place, it should be corrected.
As to a lot of general work contractors, 「checking lists」are made, and evaluation will be done according to them.
As a supplement, if doing visual search of「safety patrol check list 」or so by internet, then relative checking lists of various work contractors are hit.
Actually used lists besides template should not be printed or used freely. However, as to what kind of items other companies are checking, probably it seem to be worth for reference.
By applying above itemized sentences to interior decorative work as much as possible, we will go on enumerating them.
Checking out tools and the like, and checking situation
As for interior decorative construction work too, we use a lot of tools.
This time, we are explaining them roughly as follows.
(Step ladder, scaffold ladder, step stool or so)
Scaffold ladder. It is a kind of foothold presupposing work operation on top board. Extending top board area or its leg, we can change its height and length. (There is a kind unable to change its length or so too.)
Tools are usually set each usable life ages. They cannot be used over than the periods.
We check if a foothold used does not expire each life age, if the product is properly operating, is locked, and is not worn away, according to the manufacturer recommending checking method.
In addition, we also check if it is not rusted or mud is going into it or so, then its motion is worsened. Depending on the situation, we shall clean and maintain them.
(Cutter, impact driver, other construction work using electric and hand tools)
Same as foothold, almost all tools are also set their usable life ages.
We check if they are not used over the periods, and regular maintenances shall be done.
If work operation procedure is suitably set, or is accordingly executed
Even if the same construction work process is entrusted, possible dangerous situation at work site is changing, depending on construction work sites and work progress status.
Therefore, in the first place, when general construction work contractor enters work site, it will let each work site contractor decides 「in order to execute construction work safely and smoothly, what kind of process it should do and how to carry out 」.
On that, general construction work contractor will precisely let each site work contractor to patrol again if the work process is set and kept to do actual work by workers.
For example, please suppose「When executing this construction work at this place of ceiling, using 〇〇cm or more length scaffold ladder, not using stepladder, a single worker should not do work operation alone」, which should exist as work operation process.
As for safety patrol, we will go on checking if these are really right process, and if the process is being observed.
Even if other work site should be considered right, it may not be always safest at the work site this time still under present situation.
If you happen to feel something as a problem, you have to examine different method. Even if it is right, but cannot be observed, then it is meaningless. So, we shall study what to do to be able to observe.
If work operation area and work operation range safety are kept, and its method of keeping safety is suitable?
Above picture at our company work operation site, sticking the tape of 「Watch your head」at foothold overhead area, demanding caution
As many of work operation area is freshly made building, so at footing and overhead areas, opening part, or overwrapping work operation range with other types of industry or so, there are a lot of hidden dangers.
Therefore, at safety patrol, we will check「if the work site is kept safely and correctly as much as possible」or「how it is maintained」。
For example, please suppose an arrangement of 「At a work operation on 〇〇, there is a ceiling construction work with equipment contractor at the same room. Meeting in advance, then in case it is still necessary to do work in the close area at the same time, then equipment contractor does from east area, and interior decorative contractor does from west area. Both should say something in advance.」 is done.（It is still just for an example, so it is not necessarily right method of keeping work site safety.）
We are going to consider if those arrangement is precisely observed, and if there should be safer method・countermeasure.
Ancillary to above, whether putting work site in order and cleaning work site or so are executed or not?
There is a word of 5S at work site and factory, which is supposed to be must.
Respectively, these meanings are putting in order・tidying up・cleaning・neat・discipline in Japanese sound starting from S.
We check if they are executed from safety point of view.
This time, we only limit to explain roughly as below,.
If passage from material moving in entrance～to work site is neatly divided(putting in order)
If there are not easily stumbling waste materials or tools or so placed at footing area(cleaning)
Or if those are made public(discipline)
Above picture is one of 5S, cleaning is done not only for visual beauty, but also for preventing foot or leg injury for waste materials
Of course, delay of fixed construction work period should not happen.
If labor accident should occur, operation workers cease to work, and work site stops. Furthermore, that may lead to image down of general work contractor’s point of view. So, making light of safety means no good at all.
It seems that correct execution of 5S can be said reasonable.
We have so far briefly explained what is safety patrol, and what is watched at safety patrol.
Concisely making summary as below,
・Safety patrol means a kind of checking activity of general construction work contractor own or general work contractor request each work site contractor, under present work site situation, if the construction work is executed by best possible safety method and condition.
・Literally, by checking safety related items from plural viewpoints, based on advanced made check list, evaluate them.
・By maintaining work site safety, it is playing a role of preventing delay of work period arising from labor accident or image down.
From viewpoint of laborers working at work site, it often seems that safety patrol can be a kind of「haltering work operation efficiency, dismal habit」.
However, a general construction work contractor has to do their best to let each work contractor under to work without occurring any injury, and complete site work to the end.
We are thinking of wishing all of you to understand that safety is irrespective of general work contractor・subcontractor, which is a necessary item required for all people.
In addition, by observing safety at work site, there are a lot of things that we also feel relative construction work will proceed smoothly too.
Our company also consider to observe daily safety, and to focus our energies and minds so as not to occur labor accident from now on too.
