As the Project Manager specializing in planning, executing and overseeing all phases of a project, a key responsibility includes job-site safety and ensuring all safety equipment and materials are purchased before needed.
Project Managers must meet multiple deadlines for different project phases and ensure the project meets established standards and goals within the client's budget. If problems arise, the Project Manager intercedes to resolve them or to develop alternate solutions to keep the project on track with regard to time management, project prioritization plus thorough and timely communication skills. The Project Manager must also effectively direct the activities of workers engaged in various tasks with respect to productivity, safety, health and overall compliance. They should also be actively involved in pre-project Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) in order to properly mitigate hazards and develop and train the site specific safety plan to everyone working on the site.
