The Buddy System: A Proven Safety Protocol


How COMANCO Uses the Buddy System to Protect Workers

“The Buddy System” is defined as “a cooperative arrangement whereby individuals are paired or teamed up and assume responsibility for one another’s instruction, productivity, welfare, or safety.” This proven safety protocol is a simple but effective way to improve safety in the workplace. By pairing two workers together, each can watch out for the other and assist if needed. 

At COMANCO, we use the buddy system on all projects to minimize risks. For example, this safety protocol can be used on projects that involve potential methane gas exposure, confined spaces, underground work, and demolition. When workers are assigned a buddy, they are responsible for:

  1. Keeping an eye on each other for signs of distress
  2. Communicating with each other about their surroundings
  3. Raising the alarm if they see or smell anything dangerous

Overall, the buddy system is an effective way to prevent accidents and injuries in the workplace. Furthermore, studies show that the buddy system can reduce the risk of injury by up to 50%. The proven benefits make the buddy system an essential safety measure for hazardous environments. By working with a buddy, you can improve your safety and the safety of your colleagues.
