Product Description


“Notwithstanding this, the book presents a very helpful ‘one-stop-shop’ for construction OHS information relevant to the UK. It presents good value and would be a very useful prescribed textbook for UK-based undergraduate courses for the built environment professions.”  (Construction Management and Economics, 1 February 2010)

"[Howarth and Watson] are in prime position to write an authorative and comprehensive book with the express purpose of supporting the study of health and safety on professionally accredited undergraduate built environment degree programmes. And they succeed in this aim admirably." (RoSPA Occupational Safety & Health Bulletin, April 2009)

"This book … will stand the test of time¯it is a book that the owner would refer to frequently and richly deserves its place on your book shelf at home or in the office and certainly should be in the library of colleges." (Building Engineer, February 2009)

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.

Students on courses ranging from Architecture, Architectural Technology, Building Engineering, Civil Engineering, Construction Management, Project Management and Quantity Surveying will find that each chapter presents clear learning objectives, addresses key issues and concepts and provides for self-assessment of learning.
