Please note- This publication is due to be updated to the 2019 edition due for release on 3rd December. If you are running a Site Safety Plus course, continue to use 2018 editions until 1st January

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.
