Main goals of RM on construction sites or operational plants include
- Identifying inherent hazards.
- Mitigating the probability of accidents from taking place due to inherent hazards.
- Mitigating the magnitude of the impact of such accidents.
- Recommending the implementation of commensurate loss prevention and protection measures to ensure a safer working environment.
Through construction site visits and inspections, the above goals are achieved. The number of such visits are determined on the basis of the following factors
- Size of the construction project.
- Nature and complexity of the contract works.
- Duration of the construction project.
- Scope of (insurance) coverage.
- Available budget.
When can visits to construction sites or to operational plants be conducted?
- Prior to the commencement of the construction / erection works (CAR, EAR).
- During the phases of construction, erection, and testing (CAR, EAR).
- After the commencement of the commercial operation of the facility or site (MB, EE, LoP, DoS, CECR/CC).
- After the cessation and prior to restart of the contract works (Standstill covers following CAR or EAR).
Outcome of the site visits
- A comprehensive report (including photos to substantiate our observations and findings) will be prepared and submitted to the client within a time frame of 10 days following the visit (subject to having all relevant risk information available on-hand).
