When An Accident Occurs On The Job Site

In the event that a major accident does occur on the job site, the CM/GC must be prepared to act immediately. Depending on the seriousness of the injury, the proper people must be contacted. In order to expedite the process, a contact list similar to Exhibit 5-30 must be available. It may be necessary to contact all the organizations listed so that the required assistance arrives at the site as quickly as possible. Any delays could cause catastrophic results. The CM/GC should also develop an on-site SWAT team that will be trained to act in an emergency situation. Their responsibility would be to give directions to all the trades people so that they would be out of harm's way. In addition, they would comfort any of the accident victims until the professionals arrive at the site.

Once the accident victims have been seen to and removed from the site, the paperwork process begins. OSHA requires that forms noted in Exhibits 5-31, 5-32, and 5-33 be filed. In addition, the form noted in Exhibit 5-34 should be filled out for the
