TECHNICAL SAFETY ON CONSTRUCTION SITES
Safety is defined as a state that gives a sense of confidence and a guarantee of its behavior and a chance for improvement. The level of safety at the construction site depends on many factors, and a significant group of them are technical factors that determine the possibility of adverse events. The possibility of adverse events occurring is called unreliability. This concept is opposed to the concept of reliability, which is more commonly used in construction. Knowledge of reliability is necessary to conduct construction works. There is a need for a structural engineer to take into account safety issues and an obligation to have general knowledge in the field of safety and technical safety. Knowledge of technical safety allows for the proper conduct of works on the construction site.
The article introduces the issues of technical safety, characterizes selected types of activities posing hazards on the construction sites and proposes ways to eliminate them.
