Construction Site Safety (GE 700/18)

Construction Site Safety (GE 700/18)

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.

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 publication 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 2018
• Content has been reviewed and updated, where necessary, to ensure information reflects current legislation and good practice.
• Sections A, D, E, G and I have been thoroughly reviewed.
• The health and safety policies chapter in Section A has been retitled and restructured, and contains new, comprehensive information on health and safety management systems, including the HSE's recognised model HSG65: plan, do, check and act.
• The dangerous substances and explosive atmospheres information in Section D has been updated to reflect current legislation and good practice.
• The new international standard for procurement, ISO 20400, has been introduced in Section E, with a link to more detailed information.

This product is complemented by a FREE to access companion website, which provides amendments or updates to the current GE 700 publication and brings together the latest advice, guidance and links to related websites. The Section G interactive PDF checklists and forms are also available to download from the companion website.
