The site supervisor;

The supervisor is an engineer appointed by the Ministry to supervise and inspect the works, to give professional opinions on the latter, to carry out measurements and layouts, to prepare reports and calculations in order to certify the conformity of the works, to recommend the payment of the works and to receive the works.

Roles and functions

The supervisor plans and coordinates the progress of the surveillance activity by establishing the objectives to be achieved, as well as the means and resources necessary to achieve it. He monitors the progress of activities to ensure that they are carried out. He establishes and maintains good relations with the monitoring team, the project manager, the designers and the contractor, deals with them and establishes a favorable climate. It analyzes problems, questions or situations. It collects, organizes and processes information in a logical and systematic way. He identifies realistic and judicious options by evaluating the advantages and disadvantages in order to select the solution that is best suited.

He is therefore responsible for supervising the works in their qualitative, quantitative and administrative aspects. The supervisor orders the steps of supervision and establishes the general deadlines for completion. These deadlines will then be revised based on the contractor's work schedule. He also prepares the hierarchical monitoring organization chart and organizes the communication plan, which includes the flow of information between the monitor, the monitoring team and the project manager, as well as the system for coding and filing construction documents. The supervisor is also the sole point of contact with the contractor. All communications to the contractor must therefore pass through the supervisor.
The supervisor may delegate certain technical or administrative tasks, but he retains all the responsibility entrusted to him as supervisor of the work. A task should be delegated to only one person at a time. The coordination, the reliability of the results and the responsibility inherent in the decisions therefore fall to the supervisor, even if certain tasks such as quality control are carried out by another entity. As such, the supervisor ensures that the documents to be kept and produced by the members of the supervision team are added to the site file.
The supervisor and his representative must sign the following documents:
- monitoring plan;
- site diary;
- quantity variation report.

** Traffic on construction sites:
The presence of various moving vehicles, the many pedestrian movements and work areas near the equipment, the multiple maneuvers to be performed, the reduced visibility, the reversing maneuvers... These are some of the factors that can lead to dangers when cohabiting pedestrians and heavy equipment on construction sites, and considerably increase the risk of accidents if they are not managed properly.
