External site protection refers to the types of materials, equipment and systems used to maintain safety on your construction project. It is unavoidable that the construction site is a dangerous place to be. The simple fact that you have lots of tools, fittings like nails, masonry, rubble and heavy plant equipment on site means that there are always going to be risks. These can be managed to minimise the possibility of an injury, but you will never completely remove the chance of something going wrong.
One thing that you can do to reduce the chance of a problem is install external site protection. This is basically equipment to keep your site safe. What is required has changed over time. In the past, work sites needed little more than a simple barrier around the site to stop people wandering in. The reality was that a flimsy barrier would never be able to stop an inquisitive and determined explorer. However, as time has passed, the standard for external site protection has improved. Now construction sites are far better protected. This is not only to prevent theft, but also to stop people wandering around the site and getting injured. For those who are authorised on the site, like workers and visitors or customers, external site protection is also a way of preventing injury.
An example of this type of external site protection is scaffolding sheeting. This is usually plastic or reinforced canvas, and it wraps around the outside of the scaffolding frame. As well as preventing people from climbing onto the scaffolding, this type of external site protection stops tools and building materials being dropped from a height, and has the added benefit of protecting workers from the wind and rain.
Another example of external site protection is scaffolding debris netting. This hangs under and around the scaffolding. In many circumstances it is a requirement for safe usage of the scaffolding. A bit like the scaffolding sheeting, debris netting catches tools and debris that falls from a height, meaning that no one underneath is injured.
Another example of external site protection are barriers. These can include site barriers to control people entering the site. However, there are also lighter weight, high visibility barriers that can be used to mark high risk areas, such as separating a pathway from the route where trucks and machinery will be moving. This prevents easily avoidable accidents by controlling where people can access and which way they walk on site.
