The construction industry has an unenviable record of health and safety, which it must strive to put firmly into the past. Everyone concerned with construction has both a moral and legal duty to take care, not only of their own health and safety, but the health and safety of others who might be put at risk by their actions or failure to take action. The professional engineer, whether in the office or on site, must be fully conversant with their statutory obligations, the project-specific health and safety requirements, and the particular responsibilities relating to their own appointment. The management of health and safety in construction states the Institution of Civil Engineer's view of the responsibilities for health and safety as they affect the professional engineer. It offers clear guidance to civil engineers of their legal obligations and covers the recent legislation governing health and safety in the construction industry including: The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1992; and The Construction - Design and Management) Regulations 1994.
