Prioritize Planning for Safety | How to Prevent Dumpster Fire Projects: A Webinar Recap

Written by :

Dave Finnegan


Read a recap of our Safety Week webinar that focused on planning as they key to keeping projects safe.

Failure to plan is the root of all safety incidents. Serious injury or fatality (SIF) incidents are rarely the result of one single factor. Sound planning practices find and eliminate contributing factors before the work begins.

Touchplan recently hosted a webinar on how effective planning can help reduce SIF incidents.

Andrew Piland was joined by site safety experts on Steve Jordan from Flintco and Kevin Gausch from Safety Culture to discuss how proper planning improves collaboration, streamlines handoffs, and mitigates risks.

Some of the key takeaways from the webinar include:

  • One of the most critical safety components relates to how construction leadership approaches the front line. Leaders are investing in the long-term safety of every project by listening to front-line workers and ensuring they have the resources they need to succeed physically, mentally, and emotionally.
  • Data insights are useful in anticipating safety hazards, but it is only effective if people know how to use data effectively.
  • Safety needs to be further integrated into general decision-making. Leadership and accountability are the keys to sound decision-making that properly accounts for safety.
