A health and safety plan (HSP) must be drawn up as soon as in the design phase (D) if in the execution phase (E) there will be more than one employer on the construction site and if more than ten people are employed at the same time on the site.
On construction sites with several employers and 10 or fewer people employed at the same time on the site, an HSP must be prepared if particular dangerous work is carried out on the site. In this case, the HSP should only cover the part of the work that relates to the particular hazard.
It is recommended that an HSP is always prepared, except for the very small and harmless constructions.
The HSP must be available to employees and employers on the construction site throughout the construction period.
Once the building owner has entered into agreements with the contractors, the health and safety plan (HSP) must be completed in accordance with the specific agreements entered into with the contractors, etc. It will typically be the occupational health and safety coordinator (E) who solves this task.
The HSP is then completed and finally approved by the building owner.
The HSP must be available before the start of the construction site and must likewise be available to the employers and their employees at their start on the construction site
The HSP must be an active part of the basis for cooperation on health and safety on the construction site.
The HSP should therefore be designed in an easily accessible form.
The HSP is updated during the construction process:
If the task of occupational health and safety coordination in the design and execution phase is not handled by the same person, a proper transfer of PSS must take place.
