Fire Safety In Construction
5 January 2011
This is not new but we thought a very valuable resource from the HSE. The second edition of 'Fire safety in construction' explains how everyone involved in construction projects can comply with their legal duties relating to fire risks. It is aimed at all those with a role for developing and managing construction sites, including clients and designers, and is relevant to all construction projects, including small refurbishment sites.
Much of what is contained in the guidance is not new, but the sections covering multi-storey buildings and high risk buildings (such as timber frame) have been strengthened to include lessons learned from recent fires.
