The Importance of a Pre Task Plan

pre task plan

Pre task plans are used to identify and assess risks prior to work being performed, providing all team members with an outline of what's expected of them and the potential hazards involved with performing the task at hand. It serves as a roadmap that ensures all are clear on expectations as well as controls in place to mitigate risk. Pre task plans are also an effective way of verifying that tasks, equipment and safety expectations outlined in your Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) or Safety Plan are actually being implemented successfully.

Traditional pre-task plans are created on paper and reviewed and signed off by a supervisor or safety officer before being accepted as complete and the crew allowed to start work. Unfortunately, this can be slow and error prone as paper forms can easily get misplaced amidst all of a foreman's desk clutter or worse, the team might forget submitting it altogether.

Construction safety tools exist that can make creating pre-task plans much simpler, such as eMOD's construction software solution which offers users prepopulated templates for various jobs, tasks and trades - saving foremen time by cutting out time-consuming manual processes for pre-task planning processes.

Pre-task planning is at the core of proactive safety, driving productivity, efficiency and compliance on any jobsite. Prevent costly project delays, schedule impacts, reworks injuries employee turnover morale worker's comp costs fines fees as well as poor public image with pre-task planning.
