This new edition highlights the main health and safety duties in a convenient and readable format, and provides extensive bibliographies that identify any related legislation and approved codes of practice and guidance.

The chapters on CDM and work equipment have been comprehensively revised to account for the new approved code of practice on CDM, and the provision of Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 and Lifting Operators and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998, respectively.

Two new chapters have been added to reflect the increasing tendency for construction fatalities to be investigated by the Police (with a view to bringing manslaughter charges), and the usefulness of comprehensive management plans in place to deal with such crisis. This book will be an essential reference source for all those who are involved in construction projects.
