Communication is essential to safety! It is important to understand the dangers associated with each task you are required to perform. In addition, it is essential to be aware of other work that is being performed in and/or around shared work areas.
Work conditions can change by the day, hour or even minute. From an oversized delivery, weather or many other reasons, it is important to know in advance what to do, and whenever possible, have a system of communication in place.
Always do a JSA/THA (Job site assessment/task hazard assessment) and know your exits and rally point(s).
