When VIPs want to tour ongoing construction projects, here’s what I’d suggest:
–Tour requests will be granted on a case-by-case basis at the discretion of the Risk Manager and/or Construction Site Manager/Construction Site Safety Officer.
–Prior permission is required for any construction site visit due to safety, security, liability, and legal reasons.
–Individuals or groups on a construction site without permission will be escorted off site.
–A waiver and release agreement must be signed.
–All tours will be lead by an authorized escort, and participants must stay with their group.
–All tour participants must sign in (with photo ID) and sign out to enter site.
–Bar minors from the site.
–Requests must be made at least one week in advance of the tour.
–Tours at any time may be subject to cancellation and rescheduling dependent on project and construction activity, weather, or other factors at the discretion of the Risk Manager and/or Construction Site Manager/Construction Site Safety Officer.
–Proper PPE and attire is required (hard hat, safety vest, long pants, and covered shoes).
–Partition the site such that certain areas are available for tours and other (active) areas are off bounds.
