Don’t Skimp on the Safety Walkaround

At Tucker Paving, we take the safety of our workers and clients very seriously. One way we demonstrate this commitment is by conducting safety walkarounds. What is a safety walkaround? Glad you asked! A safety walkaround is basically a tour of the jobsite with the intention of finding and correcting any safety concerns.

The Safety Walkaround, Broken Down
There are three stages to a safety walkaround, and each stage plays an important part in the overall safety of the entire team. At Tucker Paving, we don’t believe in cutting corners, so when we do a safety check, we make sure it’s done right.

  1. Pre-inspection. Before starting any walkaround, it’s important to identify any areas of concern, plus schedule a time that will be convenient for any managers, officials, or safety committee members that should be involved. Make sure that any necessary equipment will be ready, and that you have the appropriate attire for the worksite.
  2. Inspection time. While doing the walkaround, keep a sharp eye out for things that be potential safety issues, such as tripping hazards, blocked exits, poorly maintained equipment, frayed or exposed electrical components, needless clutter, etc.
  3. Post-inspection. A report and abatement plan should be drafted soon after the inspection which includes a timeline for corrective actions to be taken. This should be shared with all involved parties and updated as improvements are implemented.
