Safe working practices on projects must be paramount as even apparently clean, safe sites may have been contaminated at some stage in the past, leaving a legacy of pollution which can affect the health of site workers, occupiers, neighbours, and adjacent land and groundwater resources both during and after redevelopment. Produced as part of CIRIA's research programme on the remedial treatment of contaminated land, this guide is intended for use by a wide readership - everyone from the general engineer to the contaminated land specialist. It provides guidance to safe working practices for contaminated sites by informing all those involved about their statutory responsibilities for health, safety and environmental protection; the potential range of contaminants and hazards and how to plan and manage the work accordingly; and safe working methods and the use of appropriate safety clothing and equipment. A set of five posters for site operatives is included with the book, which can be purchased separately as SP119.
