1.1 PURPOSE:The purpose of the Construction Project Safety Management Best Practices Handbook is to provide comprehensive coverage of best practices from contractors of all phases of a construction project from project planning, design, project start-up, construction, commissioning, and closeout, in separate chapters. The handbook also provides various templates of safety planning forms and checklists (e.g. Pre-construction safety meeting checklist). They can be easily replicated by medium or smaller companies who otherwise cannot afford to create these tools from scratch. Each chapter has an “additional resources” section at the end for those who wish to explore more deeply into the topic area. The handbook’s scope is limited to safety management, administration, and programs in construction. The handbook’s primary focus is on project safety administration/management programs.

1.2 SCOPE:
The handbook is written to meet the needs of project owners, and small and medium-sized contractors as a ready reference guide for project site safety management. It will also be helpful as a safety management training manual for entry-level safety, and construction professionals. University and college instructors can use this handbook as a construction safety management course textbook for students who are pursuing safety management or construction management degrees.
