To improve the general health and safety protection on sites, the principal has to appoint a health and safety coordinator as far as several contractors are involved.
The health and safety coordinator supports the principal in work safety measures but is not authorized to issue directives. With the help of the health and safety coordinator, work safety should already be taken care of in the planning phase.
The Tasks of a Health and Security Coordinator Include:
- Notifying the Occupational Health and Safety Authorities
- Compiling Site Regulations
- Health and Safety Plans
- Incorporate Health and Safety Security into Bill of Quantities
- Checking Contractor's Documents before the Start of Construction
