Abstract During light and rapidly-executed construction work there is a risk that safety precautions may not be deemed necessary or worthwhile. Based on inspections of construction sites and on discussions with safety experts, this report describes various hazardous situations with respect to falls from heights or electrocution. Safety measures are proposed for each of these situations. An approach is proposed for the implementation of appropriate safety measures when planning light and rapidly-executed construction work.
