Site visitors book
The arrival and departure of all visitors to a construction site must be recorded in a site visitors book. This is to ensure that site management have an accurate and up-to-date record of persons on site in case of an emergency.
This book should be prominently displayed at the reception of the site offices. Signing in and out of the book will usually be a visitor’s first and last interactions with the site. Details that may be required include:
- Name of person being visited.
- Email address and/or phone number.
- Car registration number.
- Time of arrival.
- Time of departure.
The book enables fire marshals to account for everyone in the event of an evacuation. It can also be useful if there are incidents on site, and as a record of visits.
The book should be robust and durable as it will be subject to frequent use. Some books contain detachable passes for visitors to wear while on the site, which helps to increase security.
