Fire Safety In Construction, HSG168
Guidance For Clients, Designers And Those Managing And Carrying Out Construction Work Involving Significant Fire Risks, HSG168
- Health And Safety Executive (HSE)
- HSE Books
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. When construction activities are not adequately controlled, children and other members of the public can also be killed or injured, and property adjacent to construction sites be put at risk - for example, from a site fire large enough to spread off-site.
The guidance will be useful to all those who have a role in the development, management and application of fire safety standards on construction sites, ie clients, designers, contractors and CDM co-ordinators. It will also support those with legal responsibilities under the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007, the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 and the Fire (Scotland) Act 2005, while helping site managers with the day-to-day management of fire risks on site.
