Please note- This publication is due to be updated to the 2018 edition due for release on 1st December. If you are running a Site Safety Plus course, continue to use 2017 editions until 1st January 2018

Construction site safety (GE 700) is the leading publication within the construction industry for authoritative information on current construction health, safety and environment legislation, guidance and good practice. It is the official supporting publication for the CITB Site management safety training scheme (SMSTS), a five-day course for construction site managers, and the two-day SMSTS refresher course.

Managing a site can be demanding and we recognise that having quick and easy access to the correct, up to date practical guidance is important. Revised annually, this is the only publication that brings everything you need to know about construction health, safety and environment together in one place. GE 700 is a ‘one stop - must have’ product that has the busy site manager firmly in mind.

New for 2017

• Sections C, F and I have been thoroughly reviewed. (These sections are available as an update pack, to update your 2016 Construction site safety publication to the latest edition.)
