The Safety and Health Plan (SHP) is a document that contains the relevant information and indications in security and health matters necessary to reduce the occurrence of risk of work accidents and professional illness at the construction sites (during construction phase).

Thus, prevention measures are taken as to minimize the risk factor and protect from eventual accidents.

The Safety and Health Plan is a document that shall be object of constant updating, starting its preparation during the general conception of the construction work and concluding it after the end.

The Safety and Health Plan (SHP) represents, thus, one of the base instruments on the security and health management at the construction site. It shall be outlined before the construction work, being a legal demand at this phase of the project, enumerating the particularities of the construction work and the various security aspects, as:

– Risk assessment and adopted preventive measures;

–  Experienced eventual constrains;

–  Organizational measures;

– Activity development plan;

The civil construction activities in construction site carry several risks that may result in accidents when the necessary security measures are not taken: falls from high place, smashing or buried by landslide. However, the use of preventing measures may guarantee the security of everyone at the construction sites.

Although it is not a mandatory document in private construction works, and with a diminutive use in construction of small expression, it is, however, a key element to works of greater dimension, as it fully describes all the works and materials to be done and used at the construction, inserting the received budgets and materials, brands and similar finishes as well as all the measurements.

As all budgets will be presented by all constructors from this document supplied by the Construction Owner, it is easy to check item by item the presented prices.

On the other hand, before the beginning of the works, one has the exact notion of the works, quantities and materials to be applied, avoiding during the construction work eventual financial deviations due to works changes.
