Occupational Safety and Health Supervisors Courses
(SHE)Site Hygiene and Environment

Keeping the sites tidy and clean is very important for protecting employees’ health and safety at work. If it is not controlled properly, workers may face to the physical, chemical and biological hazards. For example, breathing in excess amount of dusts, exhaust gas, asbestos could affect workers’ respiratory system seriously. The rats and mosquito breeding in the sites will cause infection diseases, such as plague and dengue fever. The public may also be affected by poor site hygiene. The dusts, waste water, noise, construction debris and the breeding bacteria and mosquito generated in the construction sites will affect the public and the surrounding environment. Therefore, contractors have the responsibilities to maintain the site hygiene and tidiness in order to protect the workers’ health and safety at work.

Beside of the senior management, supervisors are also responsible to ensure the site hygiene and tidiness. Supervisors like site agent, foreman should have the knowledge of environmental protection, as well as how to maintain good site hygiene and tidiness in order to implement good site hygiene management and environmental-friendly construction processes.
