RISK ASSESSMENT AND MANAGEMENT APPROACH

We don't just provide construction management, architectural, and engineering services – we are building a community!

RISK ASSESSMENT

It is the policy of TJCM that for every work task to be completed, the risk (probability + severity) is assessed/analyzed so that proper controls can be put into place to minimize and lower the risk of injury/illness. TJCM utilizes a combination of formal hazard assessment techniques and site-specific hazard assessment techniques.

Risk assessment is a vital component in ensuring on-site safety, helping to drive TJCM toward our ZERO ACCIDENT target.

Formal Hazard Assessments

TJCM field staff and all subcontractors are required to participate in Formal Hazard Assessments prior to start of a new job and as job conditions or scope of work is altered or new work tasks are added.

  • Pre-Job Hazard Assessment and Safety Meeting
  • Job Hazard Analysis for all TJCM Tasks

Site-Specific Hazard Assessment Methods

TJCM field staff and all subcontractors are required to complete Site-Specific Hazard Assessments prior to start of a new job and as job conditions or scope of work is altered, while on-site.

  • Daily Tailgate Meetings
  • Field Level Hazard Assessments (FLHA)

HAZARD CONTROLS

Once hazards are assessed and prioritized using TJCM’s Risk Ranking Table and controls are put into place. TJCM follows the below guide/hierarchy for providing controls for hazards. These controls are listed below in order from MOST EFFECTIVE to LEAST EFFECTIVE:

Hierarchy of Controls

S - Personnel Safety

P - Business/Production

E - Environmental

D - Damage

H - HIGH RISKS
Unacceptable risk level. Actions are required to eliminate or reduce the risk immediately

M- MEDIUM RISKS
Risk controls are required

L - LOW RISKS
Acceptable risk (controls will still be justified)
