The degree of detail required in the Construction Phase Plan for the construction phase and the time and effort in preparing it should be in proportion to the nature, size and level of health and safety risks involved in the project. Projects involving minimal risks will call for simple, straightforward plans. Large projects or those involving significant risks will need more detail.
What should the Construction Phase Health & Safety Plan cover?
The Construction Phase Plan should set out the arrangements for securing the health and safety of everyone carrying out the construction work and all others who may be affected by it.
It should deal with:
- the arrangements for the management of health and safety of the construction work;
- site rules
- specific measures concerning particular high risk works .
