Safety and health in construction. An ILO code of practice.

"It goes a long way in mapping out the agenda for health and safety professionals in this most dangerous and populous industry."
Annals of Occupational Hygiene, Derby, United Kingdom

Changes in working practices and conditions in the construction industry over the past decade have meant that the competent authorities, health and safety committees, management or employers’ and workers’ organizations, in particular, should take a fresh look at such aspects as the safety of workplaces, health hazards, and construction equipment and machinery. This code of practice takes account of new areas in the sector which require improved health and safety practices and other protective measures.
