Regulation

The principle of health and safety within Liteways is to ensure that all activities related to the construction, renovation, and operation of buildings and infrastructure are carried out in a safe and healthy manner, protecting workers, occupants, and the public from harm.

In Ireland, the health and safety in the construction industry is regulated by the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work (Construction) Regulations, which set out specific requirements for the management of health and safety on construction sites. The regulations establish the responsibilities of employers, employees, self-employed persons and designers, in relation to health and safety on construction sites.

Compliance

Liteways will provide a safety statement outlining the specific measures that will be taken to ensure the health and safety of workers on the site. We always appoint a competent person to oversee the management of health and safety on the site.

We ensure that employees & Subcontractors receive adequate information, instruction, training and supervision to enable them to perform their work safely, and that appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) is provided and used. This is imperative to us, a safe site is a punctually finished site.

Liteways ensures that all construction sites have a safe system of work in place, which includes identifying and controlling hazards, implementing emergency procedures, and providing first aid facilities.

Regular safety inspections and audits are also be carried out on site to identify possible hazards and non-compliances with the regulations and correct them. Our construction sites are always kept clean and tidy, and any waste disposed of safely.

Prevention

Overall, the principle of health and safety in the Irish construction and property development sector is to ensure the safety and well-being of all workers, occupants, and the public by providing a safe working environment and implementing regulations, procedures, and best practices to prevent accidents and injuries and thus ultimately prevent delays and financial losses on site.
