Importance of Health and Safety in Construction Sites.

Health and Safety in Construction Sites in Kenya

A construction site is a very high-risk work environment. Surrounded by building materials, tools, and machinery, construction workers can find themselves facing hazards at any given moment. 

An accident caused at a construction site can easily result to lifelong physical impairment or instant death.  

Health and safety in construction sites in Kenya is not a matter to be taken lightly. 

Most accidents can be avoided by implementing stringent health and safety protocols and ensuring those protocols are constantly maintained. H&S methods will ensure the construction site has good design, good planning and uses tried and tested safety techniques. Companies and Organizations therefore have an obligation to train their people on safety.    

Over the years, companies that have neglected to adhere to safety regulations in Uganda and East Africa or training of staff have found themselves with lawsuits and fines which could have been easily avoided.  

Here are the most common types of construction site accidents. 

  • Falls From Height 
  • Falling Objects 
  • Tripping Hazards 
  • Defective Equipment 
  • Vehicle Accidents 
  • Excessive Noise and Vibrating Tool Hazards
