Safety and Health Plan shows the job-site structures and the health and safety guidelines related to the specific building project. Risks that are specific to the building site will be inventoried and assessed in this plan. Before the start of work, the contractors must prepare their own health and safety plan and submit it to the safety co-ordinator, who will review the risk evaluations and co-ordinate among them.
Note: the health and safety plans of the contractors should be submitted to the safety co-ordinator 1 to 2 weeks before the start of work.
The co-ordination journal shows the information and comments concerning the co-ordination and events on the job site.
The post intervention file is the file containing the elements relevant to safety and health that must be taken into account during work that may be carried out later and that has been adapted to the characteristics of the construction.
A co-ordination structure should be set up on all job sites where either the probable work volume will exceed 5,000 man-days or where the total price of the work, estimated by the project supervisor responsible for the design, will exceed €2,500,000, ex VAT, and where at least three contractors are carrying out work simultaneously. (Art. 37-Sub-section IV – Royal Decree 25/01/01 concerning temporary and mobile construction sites).
