Keeping Your Construction Site Safe and Secure When It Is Unattended – Checklist

This checklist can be used by principal contractors or site supervisors to undertake basic checks to keep your site safe and secure when it is unattended.

Unauthorised access to your site could result in serious injuries or fatality, as well as theft and vandalism. A person with management or control of a workplace at which construction work is carried out must ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the workplace is secured from unauthorised access. This includes ensuring the site or the work area is secure prior to leaving, especially if hazards are present.

For sites in close proximity to a route travelled by children, such as a school, park or recreational area, consider installing a perimeter fence if hazards cannot be removed or secured against unauthorised access.
