Construction site safety is the leading publication within the construction industry for authoritative information on current construction health, safety and environment legislation, guidance and best practice.
Managing a site can be demanding and we recognise that having quick and easy access to the correct, up-to-date practical guidance is important. Following consultation and feedback with industry, including site managers, we have extensively redeveloped GE 700 into a 'one stop- must have' product that has the busy site manager firmly in mind.
GE 700 follows the standard structure used across all CITB-ConstructionSkills core publications and digital editions.
Section A Legal and management
Section B Health and welfare
Section C General safety
Section D High risk activities
Section E Environment
Section F Specialist activities
The colour-coded chapters within each section have a single column format, to improve readability, simplified language, new icons and more images. New content, case studies and practical day-to-day guidance give advice on what to do in some situations, and legislation within chapters has been refreshed and streamlined to provide additional advice on solutions.
These sections are supported by Section G Checklists and forms, which has been created to contain all the checklists and forms that users will find useful on a day-to-day basis.
Revised annually, this is the only item that brings everything you need to know about construction health, safety and environment together in one place.
A free companion website has been created to support GE700 which keeps users informed of news, legislation changes, content updates and related topic web-links, best practice and industry safety alerts:
GE 700 is the official supporting publication for the CITB-ConstructionSkills Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS), a five-day course for construction site managers.
