Special issue of Practice Periodical on Structural Design and Construction, May 2002, Vol. 7, No. 2.

This special issue contains eight practice-oriented papers that discuss current construction safety issues and emphasize the need for the entire construction team (owner, architect/engineer, general constructor, construction manager, subcontractors and suppliers) to make safety the number one priority. Whether you are implementing a new construction safety program—or modifying your existing plan—you will find the practical advice and insight offered in this collection to be valuable in reducing construction site injuries and fatalities.

Topics include:

  • a primer on Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards that involve professional engineers;
  • the need for a Site-Specific Safety Plan;
  • the impact of poor site safety as measured by the cost of highway work zone injuries;
  • safety program guidelines for public school facility construction and operations;
  • how to improve safety incentives to reduce injuries;
  • the effectiveness of OSHA citations;
  • a comparison of the site safety policies of construction industry trade groups;
  • ASCE's current policy statement on Construction Site Safety, known as ASCE 350.
