The construction industry is a global, dynamic and innovative industry that delivers buildings and infrastructure for all aspects of commercial and domestic activity. This dynamic and innovative industry is faced with safety challenges on a project by project and day to day basis. Excellence in Health and safety management is therefore a key requirement of construction industry professional practice, and as such its study is a necessary and core component of a wide range of built environment undergraduate degree programmes, either as a distinct discipline or as an embedded component. Construction Safety Management is an accessible, up-to-date text that outlines the principles and practices of construction health and safety management. It is written to support the study of health and safety on professionally accredited undergraduate built environment degree programmes. The text introduces and informs the reader of issues, concepts, legislation and practice pertinent to the sound development of knowledge and practice requisite for effective construction health and safety management.
