ANSI/ASSE Construction Emergency Procedures Standard Now Available

The ANSI/ASSE A10-26-2011 standard, Emergency Procedures for Construction and Demolition Sites, is one of the newest American National Standards.

The ANSI A10 Committee has produced a new standard to help construction and demolition site managers prepare for emergency events such as fires, collapses, and hazardous spills. OSHA requires contractors to plan for such event before starting a job, and the new ANSI/ASSE A10-26-2011 standard, Emergency Procedures for Construction and Demolition Sites, will assist with that task.

The standard applies to emergency procedures involving fires, collapses, hazardous spills and other emergencies that could endanger workers; emergency rescue of injured or ill workers or other people or of uninjured workers unable to rescue themselves; and on-site provision of first aid and emergency medical care; as well as evacuation and transportation of injured or ill workers to appropriate emergency medical facilities. It also covers pre-planning and coordination of the emergency plan with emergency medical facilities and training on emergency procedures/plans for workers and other groups.

ASSE is the A10 Committee's secretariat. The standard is available in hard copy or electronic copy from ASSE at a cost of $54 to ASSE members, $64 to AIHA or AHMP members, and $74 list price to others.
