This publication sets out the statutory requirements for signing, lighting, and guarding at street works and road works. This is the core reference manual for utility companies, local authorities, street work contractors and others whose day-to-day business involves street works (works by statutory undertakers and other utility companies etc) and road works (works to maintain or repair road infrastructure). The code, which covers all of the UK and includes national variations, is now compulsory for highway/road authorities in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. It applies to all single carriageway roads and dual carriageways with a speed limit of 40 mph or less. The code is now divided into three parts: Basic Principles, Operations, and Equipment and Vehicles; site layout diagrams have been redrawn to make them easier to understand. There is: increased emphasis on using risk assessment and guidance on what to consider in such assessments; strengthened guidance on providing for pedestrians and cyclists and new guidance on traffic control measures related to road closures, one-way working and temporary road obstructions; enhanced advice on other traffic control measures including works near tramways and railways, and mobile/short duration works; and updated advice on high visibility clothing and the signing and conspicuity requirements for work vehicles. Effective from 1 October 2014 when it will supersede the 2001 edition (ISBN 9780115519581).
This title sets out the statutory requirements for signing, lighting and guarding excavations and other street works on all roads except motorways and dual carriageways with hard shoulders. Although the code is directed primarily at the operative, supervisors and managers have an important reponsibility to ensure that all street and road works and operatives are safe. This is a reference manual for utility companies, local authorities, street work contractors and others whose day-to-day business involves street work.
This handbook provides practical advice and guidance on the environmental issues that are likely to be encountered at each stage of a building or civil engineering project.
There is a growing evidence base that documents the social, environmental and economic benefits that urban trees can deliver. Trees are, however, under threat today as never before due to competition for space imposed by development, other hard infrastructures, increased pressure on the availability of financial provision from local authorities and a highly cautious approach to risk management in a modern litigious society. It is, therefore, incumbent upon all of us in construction and urban design disciplines to pursue a set of goals that not only preserve existing trees where we can, but also ensure that new plantings are appropriately specified and detailed to enable their successful establishment and growth to productive maturity. Aimed at developers, urban planners, urban designers, landscape architects and arboriculturists, this book takes a candid look at the benefits that trees provide alongside the threats that are eliminating them from our towns and cities. It takes a simple, applied approach that explores a combination of science and practical experience to help ensure a pragmatic and reasoned approach to decision-making in terms of tree selection, specification, placement and establishment. In this way, trees can successfully be incorporated within our urban landscapes, so that we can continue to reap the benefits they provide.
This NEBOSH-endorsed textbook is matched to the latest syllabus of the National Certificate in Construction Safety and Health. Within the construction industry the need for specialist health and safety training is high due to the high risks involved. This is reflected in recent legislation such as CDM 2007 and explains the consistent demand for courses and learning materials. The text is easy to read, highly illustrated in full color, and supported with checklists, report forms and record sheets used currently in the industry. Students are supported with end-of-chapter questions, a study skills chapter and specimen assignments including specimen answers. As NEBOSH actively grow their qualifications internationally, demand for this book and it’s sister titles continues to increase overseas. High growth markets are the Middle East, Malaysia, India and China.
This document provides guidance for those responsible for the design of temporary traffic management arrangements which should be implemented to facilitate maintenance activities or in response to temporary situations. It contains advice relating to traffic safety measures, and the identity and location of the traffic signs needed to guide road users, including pedestrians, safely past obstructions in temporary situations. It is structured to facilitate and reflect the design process for temporary traffic management, from the initial broad brief to details of signing provision. It raises the principal issues that need to be considered in temporary traffic management design and provides advice about their resolution. The document deals with the design of temporary traffic management arrangements on single carriageway roads and dual carriageway roads separately. The design guidance is illustrated by the inclusion of sample plans. This edition supersedes the 2006 edition (ISBN 9780115527388)
