The Power of an Accident Prevention Plan

An Accident Prevention Plan (APP) is essential to all construction projects, outlining how all aspects of your company’s safety program will be successfully administered on the project while adhering to regulatory requirements and the contract requirements. 

Construction operations will not be allowed to commence on the project until the Accident Prevention Plan is complete and approved by the project’s Contracting Officer.  Having administrative submittals, including an Accident Prevention Plan, returned by the customer marked  “Revise and Resubmit” leads to unnecessary delays and lost revenue, and sometimes creates doubt in a customer that the contractor is able to fulfill the project requirements. 

Here’s how Gadzoom can help managers improve the way they create and manage their Accident Prevention Plans and other administrative submittals.

Framework for Safety

A construction Accident Prevention Plan most importantly provides the framework for how safety will be managed on every construction project.  From identification and appointment of the project’s Site Safety and Health Officer (SSHO), providing proof of training and qualifications, and outlining how each aspect of safety for the project will be managed, the APP gives all stakeholders the knowledge and confidence that the team in charge has the experience, knowledge, and tools to effectively oversee the safety requirements of the project. 

With all of the requirements of an APP, including those listed above and more, it is essential that the initial submittal of the APP be thoroughly reviewed and accepted the first time.  Our cutting-edge, proprietary software allows contractors to easily meet USACE EM 385-1-1 requirements, outlining the structure and content for Accident Prevention Plans. This gives contractors the peace of mind that their documents will get accepted the first time, every time.
