When new construction or changes to existing structures are taking place, it’s common for people involved with the process to experience new hazards or risks not previously known to the original designers. That’s why it’s important to incorporate your safety and health management system standards from the very beginning of any engineering or construction project. If you know or discover any safety and health issues that may result, these should always be considered as part of your early planning. Action steps should then be developed and implemented.
