Site Safety Handbook
3rd Edition (SP151)
Every fourth working day, on average, someone dies on a British construction site. The hazards of building and engineering construction sites are a source of great concern to the industry. It is sobering to reflect that, of those who die on a construction site, half have been working there for less than two weeks and that is something that legislation alone cannot change. Seventy per cent of fatal construction accidents could have been prevented by effective management action.
This third edition of CIRIA's "Site Safety Handbook" aims to alert those going on to site for the first time, and those who need retraining, to the risks they face. It also provides advice on safer practices and promotes responsible management and teamwork.
The guide has been completely revised and reflects changes in health and safety regulations. It gives improved guidance on risk assessments, and the revised bibliography takes account of changes in guidance. It is designed to be an easy-to-read ready reference guide for use outside, which will slip easily into a pocket. Preparation of the "Site Safety Handbook" has been guided by experts from contractors, consultants and the Health and Safety Executive
The handbook is essential reading for all who are involved at any level in the construction industry, including engineers, surveyors, consultants, site managers, site operatives, students and young construction industry professionals.
