To minimize the risk of accidents, on-going assessments must be maintained to determine what special tools, equipment, and personal protective equipment will be needed to safely accomplish the work. With a clear understanding as to what types of operations are going on around the jobsite and recognizing how some types of work will affect others, arrangements and adjustments can be made allowing the safe completion of all tasks. The key to a safe work environment is attention to detail.
