Construction Site Safety Inspections and Audits

Staffing and services construction industry Hudson Yards project

Weekly or Monthly Audits for Code Compliance

With more safety regulations being enacted in the construction industry, combined with increased measures of enforcement, it can be difficult to stay current with all of a jobsite’s requirements. In 2017 and 2018, more than 25 construction safety regulations were enacted, setting landmark years for changes in NYC building codes and construction rules!

One of the best ways to stay compliant with NYC DOB and OSHA regulations is to have jobsite inspections performed by a qualified professional. A site safety inspection can help identify hazardous conditions and correct the hazard before injuries or accidents occur.

Benefits of Performing Jobsite Inspections

Weekly or monthly audits of your construction site will help you remain compliant with OSHA and NYC DOB regulations. The Department of Buildings has increased its workforce of inspectors, and they’re out in full force looking for jobsites that are in violation of local laws and building codes.

These audits provide practical safety enforcement and ensure the Licensed Superintendent/Competent Person has all the required documentation. Regular audits will help you avoid stop-work orders and fines due to noncompliance and alleviate the unpredictability of a DOB spot inspection by ensuing all documents are up-to-date and readily available. At Total Safety Consulting, we understand the importance of conducting site audits, which is why we pride ourselves in providing thorough inspections for our valued clients on New York City construction sites.

What Do We Look for During Inspections?

At TSC, our jobsite inspections will identify and provide strategies to correct any unsafe work conditions. Our inspections include:

  1. Walk through the jobsite
    • Are all workers following the correct safety procedures?
    • Is the site safety plan being followed?
    • Are all workers wearing proper PPE?
    • Do all workers have correct certifications and training?
  2. Is all the required documentation present?
    • Required logs
    • Site safety plans
    • Inspection checklists
    • Orientations
    • Incident documentation
    • Job hazard analyses
  3. Follow-up on previous inspections – If we have previously performed an audit, we will follow up and check that recommended corrections have been implemented and safety is improved.
  4. Record Audit Findings – document and report any safety hazards or unsafe conditions that need to be corrected
  5. Provide Strategies and Actions for Improvement – Offer solutions for unsafe and hazardous conditions
