What is a Safety File?
The Safety File is a record of information, prepared by the project supervisor design process for the end user, which focuses on safety and health. The information it contains will alert those who are responsible for the structure and services in it of the significant safety and health risks that will need to be addressed during subsequent maintenance, repair or other construction work including demolition.
Who prepares the Safety File?
The Project Supervisor for the Design Process prepares the Safety File and presents it to the Client when the project is complete.
Who provides the material for the Safety File?
Some of the material for the safety file comes from the information, which the designers and the project supervisor construction stage and contractors are required to provide.
What information should be included in the Safety File?
Relevant information may include:
- Construction drawings, specifications and bills of quantities, used and produced throughout the construction process
- The general design criteria
- Details of the equipment and maintenance facilities within the structure
