Safety meetings on building and construction sites

Responsibilities of the developer:
On larger building or construction sites, the developer’s working environment coordinator (B) must hold safety meetings. The purpose of these is to coordinate the safety work of the individual employers in the shared areas.

Building or construction sites are regarded as large when more than one employer at the same time employs more than ten people on the building site. Everyone working on the building site is taken into account, including supervisors and building site managers.

The developer’s working environment coordinator (B) convenes the meetings and ensures that written minutes are kept on topics and 7 at the meeting. All employers (including subcontractors and sole traders) or their representatives take part in these meetings together with enterprises’ working environment organisations at the place of work.

The coordinator must hold regular safety meetings at least once a fortnight. Extraordinary meetings are held as required or following serious accidents and near-accidents.

It must be ensured that the decisions made at meetings are communicated to everyone on site, including to people who do not have Danish as a first language.
