ASSE Approves Standard for Multi-Employer Construction Sites

The standard sets up the minimum elements and activities of a program that defines the duties and responsibilities of construction employers working on a project where multiple employers are or will be engaged in the common undertaking to complete a construction project.

The American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) announced recently that the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has approved the updated ANSI/ASSE A10.33-2011 standard, Safety and Health Program Requirements for Multi-Employer Projects.

The A10.33-2011 standard sets up the minimum elements and activities of a program that defines the duties and responsibilities of construction employers working on a project where multiple employers are or will be engaged in the common undertaking to complete a construction project. This standard is a basis for use as a minimum safety and health guideline for a program to provide a safe and healthy work environment and to accomplish cost-effective construction.

The standard is one of a series of safety standards that have been formulated by the A10 Accredited Standards Committee on Safety Requirements for Construction and Demolition operations. The A10 standards serve as a guide to contractors, labor, and equipment manufacturers.

“This revised standard for multi-employers should reinforce the importance of proper planning, effective execution and safety on construction and demolition jobsites,” Richard King, CSP, Chair of the A10 Committee, said today. “We continue to work to enhance work safety and health on construction sites.”
