Synopsis

The construction industry is working hard to improve its health and safety record. It is now essential for employers and employees to be aware of the health and safety issues that concern them and demand for qualifications in this area is increasing.

The coverage of this book has been directly matched to the Certificate course in Construction Safety and Health from NEBOSH (National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health). However, the comprehensive coverage of health and safety topics in a construction context make it relevant for other courses in Construction Design and Management, Construction Safety and Health, and the Built Environment, both in the UK and overseas. It will prove essential reading for the building industry.

The text is highly illustrated in full colour, easy to read and includes self-assessment questions taken directly from NEBOSH examinations as well as a study skills chapter. The text is also supported with checklists, report forms and record sheets, making it a valuable reference tool for construction managers, supervisors, designers, building and civil engineers to consult on the day to day issues of health and safety.
