"The Site Safety Handbook" is a unique source of guidance and reference for all health and safety professionals in the construction industry and/or those responsible for safety - for example, project managers, engineers, site foreman, sub-contractors, safety representatives, etc. - as well for students of programmes such as Health and Safety, Construction Studies, Construction Management, Engineering, etc. Illustrated in colour throughout, this handbook focuses on construction health and safety - the applicable legislation; duties and responsibilities of those involved in construction; risk assessments and site inspections; safety documentation; training and managing safety on a day-to-day basis. It covers a wide range of common construction hazards in a clear, no-nonsense style, setting out the control measures recommended to prevent or mitigate the hazards. Suggestions for further training and/ore information provide a useful resource. It is right up-to-date, including details of the recently passed Safety, Health & Welfare at Work Act 2005. "The Site Safety Handbook" will be to the forefront in combating the risk of injury and death that plagues Irish construction sites today.
It will be a "must have" for everyone working in construction interested in safety on-site.
