The Importance of Planning Safe Project Management

Safety Project Management are integrated processes where individuals as part of an organization are involved to setup a plan, organize, execute and control activities, all of which are directed at targets that have been set and continues over time. Organizations should monitor all these activities which are oriented towards achieving the target. The organization serves as a container for pouring concepts and managing ideas. So it can be said that planning a safe project is a series of responsibilities that are closely related to each other.

Understanding the Project

The project is a group of tasks that needs to be formulated to achieve the stated aim of concrete development and must be completed within a given period using human labor. According to expert research, the project is a combination of various resources gathered in an organization to achieve a certain goal.

Project Management

Project management is the application of knowledge, skills, ‘tools and techniques’ in project activities so that the requirements and needs of the project are met. The processes of project management can be grouped into five groups, namely: ‘initiating process, planning process, executing a process, controlling process and closing process’.

When compared with the definition of the project, then all ‘other work’ is regarded as a mere routine. A routine work usually takes place in a continuous, repetitive and process-oriented environment.

Understanding Risks

There are many definitions of risk; risk can be interpreted as a form of a state of uncertainty about a situation that will be able to occur with a decision taken based on various considerations at this point.

Risk Management

Risk management is the process of measuring or risk assessment and management strategy development. Strategies that can be taken include moving the risk to another party, avoiding the risk, reducing the negative effects of risks, and accommodating part or all of the consequences of a particular risk. Traditional risk management focuses on the risks incurred by physical or legal causes (such as natural disasters or fires, deaths and lawsuits). Risk management is a series of steps that help software to understand and manage uncertainty.

Examples of Project Management and Risk

Examples of project management are: to build a football stadium, constructing large-scale studies, carrying out organ transplant surgery, post production traffic, or struggling to get an undergraduate diploma in a college.

Personal Protective 11

Personal protective equipment is the last method to try to avoid accidents. The system and recruitment training efforts are just preventive measures and are not completely sufficient to avoid risks. Hence, it becomes a must for a company to provide complete protective equipment for workers. Protective equipment includes:

  • Helmets, which is used to protect the head in case of collision-heavy
  • Earplugs, as a means of ear protection, especially for workers who are in a noisy place,
  • Gloves, these tools are used to protect the hands. Gloves should be made of fabric that is comfortable to wear to prevent workers from impact, scratches, and effects of welding rays.
  • Masks used to protect the face from the influence of light.
  • Long shirts, clothes that have good radiation absorption. Usually, these are made of rubber lead.

Conduct Strict Supervision

Supervisor’s job is to check, measure, and evaluate, to conduct follow-up related to the problems found. In few development projects, labor inspectors are assigned who monitor whether employees are executing jobs based on the SOP that has been made. The use of protective equipment, working hours, consumption, etc. could affect the optimization and safety of workers.



Creating a Project Safety Plan

Any project that is within the fields of engineering or construction will come a high level of risk. It is possible to keep this risk low and prevent any serious accident occurring, however in order to do this you need to ensure that the safety plan you put in place is up to scratch. You need to tailor everything to your specific project and have a constant line of communication with team members regarding safety.
