Written by experienced site engineers, this highly practical reference covers the key principles of construction health and safety. Guidance is provided on how risks and hazards can be managed, from the initial design stage to eventual demolition, to help maintain the health and safety of workers and the public on and around construction sites. "The ICE Handbook of Health and Safety in Construction" will provide engineers with practical guidance on understanding and achieving the various requirements of sound construction health and safety practices - written from a deeply practical perspective by experienced site engineers. Covering topics such as how to bring a crane on site and pointing the reader to sources for further information, this manual will supplement the existing material, providing an introduction for novices and a reference document for more experienced engineers.
