II. Background Construction that takes place in or near the school building while the school is in session is the most difficult kind of construction to manage. Schools are required to provide a helpful, safe learning environment. Construction and renovation projects conducted while school is in session severely test this responsibility an often present unnecessary risks to students and staff. Success largely depends upon the preparation, competence, and goodwill of the school district’s facility staff, the project architect/engineer, the contractor, and local school officials ― and the way they all work together.

Therefore, school must follow some rules and regulations during renovation and construction to protect children and adults from hazards. Parents or others who care about the health and safety of children must be informed about the law and vigilant about its implementation. Far Eastern University is currently constructing the Scenic Elevator in the Arts building. The group wanted to conduct a research on how Far Eastern University manage to allowed school construction while the classes are on going. We would also want to know on how FEU consider the safety and security of the people inside the campus.

III. Problems Statement

( To the Construction Agency)

A.Why is it allowed to construct inside the campus while classes are ongoing?

B. How do you manage to construct (e.g. elevator, building) even though a lot of students are walking nearby?

C. Why do you choose to construct during schooldays? Why not during summer vacation? Semestral break? or Christmas break?

D. In what way do you consider the safety and security of the people near the construction site?

E. Do you get any complaints regarding constructions while classes are ongoing? If you do, what are those?

(To the Students)

A. What are your reactions with regards to the construction going on during school days?

B. How are you being affected?

IV. Recommendation and Benefits

Every student has the right to an environmentally and healthy learning environment that is clean and in good repair. In response to that, Far Eastern University should serve as a role model for environmentally responsible behavior.

We recommend Far Eastern University school officials and appropriate public agencies to be held accountable for environmentally safe and healthy school facilities.

Students may really have a hard time listening to discussions when machines are busy making LOUD noises. Management should avoid construction while classes are going on. They are the one who should bare with students.

We also recommend the FEU school officials and construction agency to work together to ensure that resources are used effectively and efficiently to address environmental health and safety conditions.

Every student, parent, and school employee has a “right to know” about environmental health issues and hazards in their school environment, therefore, we recommend FEU and the construction agency to provide information signs and barricade regarding the safety measures the student must follow to minimize accidents and to provide a safe learning environment that will be beneficial to all.

This study “Construction in FEU while classes are ongoing”is beneficial to the following:

1. All FEU students

2. FEU administration, faculties and Staff

3. Construction Agency

Safety Measures for Concrete Construction

superbianx:

Understanding Safety

The current trend in construction-related injuries is decreasing. This trend is most likely due to increased awareness of the potential risks surrounding construction jobsites. The concrete industry boasts one of the lower jobsite-injury rates, but it is not necessarily the concrete that presents the greatest risk. An understanding of the potential risks of concrete construction and proper training is necessary for limiting the number of concrete construction-related injuries.

It is often said that everyone is a safety official—any person can call a halt to operations if conditions look unsafe. In fact, the ultimate safety of a construction project is the responsibility of everyone associated with the project. Owners are tasked with implementing a safety program and providing safety equipment; managers are responsible for conducting safety training, planning jobs according to the safety program, and ensuring employees are adhering to safety standards; superintendents and foremen must enforce the safety regulations and be prepared to halt unsafe actions; and the workers themselves utilize safety training by recognizing hazards, wearing and using safety equipment, policing fellow workers, and reporting unsafe conditions.

Recognizing health and safety hazards is the most important element in preventing injury and death. The second element is the precaution implemented to prevent or reduce the hazard.

Health and Safety Hazards

Construction jobsites are full of hazards, and concrete construction jobsites are no exception. These hazards can be dissected into categories for better reference as they pertain to various projects.

Material Hazards

Cement comprises 7-15% of total concrete volume. As an alkaline material, wet cement is caustic, and can cause severe chemical burns to exposed skin and eyes. Thus, working with fresh concrete presents an obvious risk. That’s why it’s so important to always wear water-proof gloves, a long-sleeved shirt, full-length trousers, and proper eye protection. If you have to stand in wet concrete, use water-proof boots that are high enough to keep concrete from flowing into them. Wash wet concrete, mortar, cement, or cement mixtures from your skin immediately. Flush eyes with clean water immediately after contact. Indirect contact through clothing can be as serious as direct contact, so promptly rinse out wet concrete, mortar, cement or cement mixtures from clothing. And always seek immediate medical attention if you have persistent or severe discomfort.

In addition to the caustic nature of cement, 95% of cement particles are smaller than 45 µm.—compared to tobacco smoke of approximately 3 µm—suggesting that the danger of inhalation is possible. Workers opening bags or sacks of cement and cement products should always wear a dust mask in addition to their regular safety attire.

Machinery

Rotating machinery is always a source of potential injury on a jobsite. Early-entry saws, concrete/masonry saws, cut-off saws, and power trowels pose a threat to appendages when used improperly. In addition, any sustained or sudden noise above 85 decibels emanating from machinery can be damaging to the ear.

Hydraulic jacks used in shoring, compressed air and hydraulic concrete pumps, belt conveyors, welding equipment, post-tensioning jacks, demolition devices, and other equipment also create potential hazards on a concrete construction site.

Tools

Besides the mechanized saws and power trowels listed above, sharp-edged trowels, hammers, chisels, utility knives, etc. can be dangerous if used carelessly or incorrectly. Long-handled bullfloats, when used near utility wires, can even be dangerous.

Height

The number-one leading cause of construction-related injuries and fatalities is attributed to falls from height. Sources of height associated with concrete construction include but are not limited to scaffolding, ladders, bucket-trucks, catwalks, elevated or wall forms, and elevated floors. Owners, managers, contractors, and laborers should be aware of specific height sources on a project as they are virtually unavoidable in construction.

Construction Practices

As a practice, concrete placement and finishing is one of the most benign forms of construction. However, certain practices associated with concrete construction contribute to risks. The use of cranes for lifting and placing concrete buckets, for tilt-up concrete panels, and for lifting precast members present hazards to the finishers and erectors. Concrete pumping, hydro-demolition, or shotcreteing operations where high pressures are generated in hoses prompt safety concerns for the nozzlemen. Reinforcement construction can demand heavy materials, protruding steel, oxyacetylene torches or welding equipment, and height sources, each of which introduces a safety hazard either singularly or in any combination. Post-tensioning operations impart stresses nearly equal to the yield strength of prestressing tendons – which can be 250,000 psi. Such forces are dangerous to jack-operators or on-looking personnel. Precast plants with heavy table forms, consolidation equipment, and curing rooms must follow safety procedures.

Jobsite Conditions

The general condition of the jobsite can also be hazardous. Cramped, confined projects or sections of a project affect operations and safety. Locations exposed to traffic, utility wires, excavations, or hazardous materials can produce unsafe conditions. Even weather (ie: snow, ice, rain, standing water, heat) can result directly in injury or combine with another risk to inflict injury to workers.

HARD HAT AREA. :|

HARD HAT AREA. :|

Why are we tolerating this? Construction while classes are on-going. Its very annoying. Classes are being interrupted because of the noise caused by the drillers and stuff. :| All sounds like hell. We can’t absorb what we are suppose to learn! We can’t walk around freely with all the off limits area around the campus. These practices should be done during vacation where there are no students present.

Hear hear!
