BEST COMMUNICATION PRACTICES DURING CONSTRUCTION EMERGENCIES
As construction is generally a high-risk work, emergencies are bound to arise. Workers can find themselves in dangerous situations with no instant means of communicating with other team members. This can lead to disastrous consequences. In large worksites or warehouses, this can be especially hazardous as some workers might get into an emergency situation without any nearby point-of-contact. That is why it’s essential for the construction managers to implement an effective and efficient safety communication protocol. By ensuring that an effective communication protocol is there during emergencies, the managers can make sure that all workers stay informed and ready when any crisis strikes, be it a natural disaster, an injury, or any other unforeseen event.
