Pollution Prevention requires coordination and onsite management.

The goal is both sustainability and safety.

There are several parallels between safety supervision and construction activity pollution prevention that can make a job site and the surrounding community safer.

The following are a few examples:

  • Jobsite safety walks for exterior construction activities
  • Trip and fall protection during exterior groundwork and construction.
  • Prevention of exposure to chemicals from leaks/spills
  • Dust controls to keep particulates out of airways.
  • Air quality associated with equipment emissions.
  • Erosion and sedimentation control

Noise Exposure

The employer must have an annual training program for workers exposed to noise at or above an eight-hour time-weighted average of 85 decibels and follow PPE standards.
