ASSE Publishes Second Edition of Construction Safety Management Book

The first edition was printed in 2004, and it is one of the society's best-selling books.

The American Society of Safety Engineers has published the second edition of its best-selling book, "Construction Safety Management and Engineering," the society announced May 8. It covers recently updated standards and technical issues in construction.

The first edition was printed in 2004. The revised edition includes construction standards adopted during the past decade and chapters devoted to fall protection, steel erection, scaffolding safety, electrical safety, and excavations.

BLS data show the leading causes of fatalities on construction sites are falls, struck-by incidents, electrocution, and caught-in/between.

"Anyone interested in construction safety and its impact to the global workforce will find here a useful reference book and guide to understanding a very complex subject," said Daryl C. Hill, a past president of ASSE, who edited the contributions of more than 40 industry experts to the new edition. "The aim is to provide a tool to address the many hazards in construction and ensure that human suffering and harm is eliminated in construction throughout the world."

The 890-page book is available at http://www.asse.org/cartpage.php?link=4447 for $129.50 for ASSE members and for a $195 list price.

"As safety professionals, we need to take full advantage of every available resource to help us do our job," Eddie Greer, a past ASSE president, wrote in the book's forward. "This text is just that, an available resource relying on subject-matter experts to help make a difference."
