Construction Site Safety

Field tests focused on new construction will likely be started during the construction phase. Construction Sites have unique and always changing hazards. Follow these guidelines to be safe on a construction site: 

  • Obtain a site briefing before entering a construction area
  • Maintain a heightened sense of awareness of your surroundings
  • Minimum PPE requirements for construction sites include:
    • Safety glasses with side shields
    • Hard hat
    • Safety boots
    • High visibility vest (not mandatory - site specific)
