Construction Safety is a Trasesa service that aims to ensure that workers comply with all the legal requirements imposed on this type of activity, for their own protection and that of those around them, and is crucial to preventing accidents at work. As well as coordinating and monitoring the work carried out on site, it ensures that all health and safety conditions are met, helping to prevent occupational hazards in this sector of activity.
What is it?
How does it works?
On-site Construction safety monitoring refers to the continuous process of monitoring and supervising safety conditions on a construction site. This function is usually carried out by professionals specialising in occupational health and safety, such as a safety technician. On-site safety monitoring involves the following activities:
- Regular inspections of the construction site to identify possible safety risks.
- Checking compliance with safety standards and applicable regulations.
- Assessment of personal protective equipment (PPE) and safety equipment used by workers.
- Identifying and correcting inadequate or dangerous practices.
- Drawing up safety reports and recommendations for improving working conditions.
- Training and awareness-raising activities for workers.

Construction Safety Coordination refers to the function of planning and managing safety during the design and execution phase of a construction project. This responsibility is usually assigned to a safety coordinator. Site safety coordination involves the following activities:
- Identification and assessment of potential risks during the project phase.
- Drawing up the health and safety plan, which includes preventive and risk mitigation measures.
- Co-operating with the various parties involved in the project (architects, contractors, sub-contractors) to ensure that safety measures are implemented correctly.
- Sharing information and instructions with workers on the risks and applicable safety measures.
- Co-ordinating safety and awareness training.
Drawing up site safety documentation is an essential part of effective occupational health and safety management in the construction environment. Two important documents in this context are the Health and Safety Plan (HSP), Waste Management Plan and Safety Procedure Sheets.
- Health and Safety Plan (HSP): The Health and Safety Plan (HSP) is a document that establishes guidelines and procedures to guarantee the health and safety of workers and other parties involved during the execution of a construction project. It is drawn up during the planning phase and must cover all aspects related to construction site safety (Risk Identification; Prevention and Protection Measures; Responsibilities and Training; Communication and Emergencies).
- Waste Management Plan: The Waste Management Plan is a document that establishes guidelines for the correct management of waste generated during the work. This plan aims to minimise environmental impacts and ensure compliance with current regulations (Waste classification; Collection and storage methods; Final destination).
- Safety Procedure Sheets: These are documents with detailed guidelines on how to carry out tasks safely in various fields. They include information on protective equipment, steps to follow and emergency actions. These sheets standardise practices, minimise risks and are updated regularly to remain effective. In short, they are essential for preventing accidents and ensuring safe working environments.
Environmental and quality management is a fundamental part of construction work, aimed at guaranteeing the preservation of the environment and the delivery of a high-quality end product. In this context, two important documents are the Environmental Management Plan and the Quality Control Plan.
- Environmental Management Plan: The Environmental Management Plan is a document that establishes the guidelines and procedures to guarantee the protection of the environment during the realisation of a construction project. It must be drawn up taking into account the applicable environmental legislation, the guidelines of the competent environmental body and the specific characteristics of the project (Identification of environmental aspects and impacts; Preventive and mitigating measures; Waste management; Environmental monitoring and control).
- Quality Control Plan: The Quality Control Plan is a document that establishes the guidelines and procedures to ensure that the work is carried out in accordance with the established quality standards. This plan is fundamental to ensuring that the final product meets the clients’ requirements and expectations (Identification of quality requirements; Inspection and control procedures).
