Building owners and architects, real estate management companies and engineering offices use the expertise of Arbeitssicherheit Hillebrand.

The eight most important points in consulting from an occupational safety perspective:

  1. Risk assessment: A risk assessment is a systematic evaluation of working conditions in order to identify potential hazards and take measures to reduce risks.
  2. Supplementary risk assessment: The conditions and potential hazards are different for every project. A supplementary checklist ensures that all aspects of occupational health and safety are observed and documented, even in the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
  3. Protective equipment: Protective equipment such as helmets, gloves and safety shoes can help to prevent injuries on the construction site.
  4. Safety plans: Safety plans should be drawn up to ensure that everyone involved on site is aware of the risks and safety measures.
  5. Training: Site-specific health and safety inductions must be demonstrated for all site employees to ensure that they have the necessary knowledge and skills to work safely.
  6. Safety equipment: Safety equipment such as fire extinguishers and emergency equipment should be available on the construction site in order to be able to react quickly in an emergency.
  7. Workplace design: The design of the workplace must be organized in such a way that the safety of employees is guaranteed.
  8. Communication: Open communication between all those involved on the construction site helps to identify and eliminate potential hazards.
