Fire safety in construction

This is the second edition of Fire safety in construction, first published in 1997.

Although the construction industry’s performance has improved over the past decade, the rates of death, serious injury and ill health for construction site workers are still too high. This book is designed to help those involved in construction identify the main causes of accidents and ill health and explain how to eliminate the hazards and control the risks. It will also support those with legal responsibilities under the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007 and the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 while assisting site managers in the day-to-day management of fire risks on site.
