As we dive into the second week of Construction Safety Month (CSM) at CJK, our focus remains steadfast on ensuring safety and preparedness in all our live projects. This week has been dedicated to addressing critical risks, with a specific spotlight on the hazards and challenges associated with electricity.
Across our live projects, we initiated stand downs that featured enlightening toolbox talks. These talks weren’t just about ‘how’ to stay safe; they also delved into the ‘why’ behind correct safety procedures. We emphasised the importance of strict adherence to these guidelines. In addition, our Quality Control and testing team conducted demonstrations of Lock Out Tag Out (LOTO) procedures for circuits undergoing maintenance. These sessions equipped our teams with the knowledge and skills to handle these procedures effectively. An Arc Flash demonstration and rescue scenario was also a vital part of our training, ensuring our teams are fully prepared for potential contingencies.
Our mechanical team was in action as well, practicing a lockout scenario on a valve similar to the Chiller system installation on one of our projects. This exercise underlines the significance of Control of Hazardous Energies (COHE) in creating a secure working environment. It’s a crucial step in ensuring the well-being of our team members.
Many thanks to the main contractor, Flynn, for hosting this valuable demonstration at one of their pharmaceutical projects. Together, we’re committed to fostering a culture of safety and preparedness at every level of our operations. Safety is not just a priority; it’s a way of life at CJK.
