May 17, 2014 – The American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) released the second edition of its “Construction Safety Management and Engineering” book with updated standards and technical issues in construction.
This edition includes construction standards adopted over the last 10 years, as well as chapters devoted to fall protection, steel erection, scaffolding safety, electrical safety and excavation.
“Anyone interested in construction safety and its impact to the global workforce will find here a useful reference book and guide to understanding a very complex subject,” said Dr. Daryl C. Hill, a past-president of ASSE, who edited the contributions of more than 40 industry experts to the new edition. “The aim is to provide a tool to address the many hazards in construction and ensure that human suffering and harm is eliminated in construction throughout the world.”
