Construction and installation work at large industrial sites are a major challenge both in terms of meeting deadlines and ensuring healthy and safe working conditions. Force majeure circumstances that require rapid and adequate response often occur at complex sites. Construction site safety is one of the most important things during a construction project. The main reason is the accidents that occur. Presented paper’s target is to shed more light on some good practices, which can lead to improved occupational health and safety. Author experienced such practices in specific conditions during processing plant construction. Such facilities are characterized by installation of special large-scale mineral processing equipment, including work in explosive atmosphere. Moreover, outdoor work in severe weather conditions is performed very often. Another very important, and at the same time difficult task, is coordinating many people, working for contractors and subcontractors. Some of the most important factors in such practice, which have a key role in the successful realization of that type of project will be discussed.
