For courses in Construction Safety, Construction and OSHA, and Safety Management for Construction.

 

This new offering tackles issues and standards relating to construction safety. Written to address the complexities of today’s job sites, it prepares students to handle all of the safety, health, and compliance responsibilities of even the largest construction projects. Divided into three parts, it covers not only the construction-related OSHA standards, but also essential safety topics such as accident causation theories and ethics and safety. Using key words, review questions, and end-of-chapter activities, it helps those individuals who are responsible for safety and health in one of the most potentially dangerous industries–the construction industry.
