Summary

Up-to-date issues and standards relating to construction safety.

Construction Safety and the OSHA Standards prepares students to handle all of the safety, health, and compliance responsibilities of even the largest construction projects. In addition to providing current coverage of the latest information and requirements in the OSHA standards for construction (29 CFR 1926, Subparts A through Z plus AA and CC), the text also includes essential safety topics not covered in the standards, such as accident causation theories and ethics and safety. Included are chapter summaries, key terms and concepts, review questions, critical thinking activities, and application activities to ensure understanding of the topics presented in each chapter. The Second Edition includes important new coverage and updating throughout, including a new chapter on innovative approaches to construction safety that go beyond just compliance (new Chapter 3).
