Construction site safety - Environment (GE700Es/19)

This standalone publication provides practical and authoritative advice on all areas of the environment within the existing legal framework and industry requirements. It provides essential information for environmental managers, site managers and site supervisors within the construction industry. It is the official reference material for the Site Safety Plus Site environmental awareness training scheme (SEATS) , a one-day course for supervisors.

GE700Es explains legal requirements and provides practical advice on how to implement and maintain the controls needed to manage the basics on site, as well as the more challenging elements. A FREE to access companion website supports the publication and provides updates to the current edition along with the latest advice, guidance and links to related websites. You can also download GE700's free interactive checklists and forms, designed to help with day-to-day site management.

GE700Es has been rebranded for 2019 and content has been reviewed and updated, where necessary, to ensure information reflects current legislation and good practice. The chapters have been restructured in consultation with industry to align with the revised SEATS course. The new sequence of chapters highlights the importance of site environmental management systems. Also included are nine new summary tables of legislation and guidance on environmental topics related to construction.

This standalone publication is also available as part of the Construction site safety - The comprehensive guide (GE700) box set.
