|Construction Safety Coordination in the European Union|
|Edit date: 25-02-2015|
This is a compilation of papers on Safety Coordination in the European Union Countries, most of which were presented during the International Conference on "Safety Coordination and Quality in Construction", held at the Polytechnic of Milan, Italy in June 1999.
This meeting highlighted the similarities and differences between European Union Countries on this subject, and an extensive discussion took place during the two-day conference, particularly as regards the implementation of Directive 92/57/EEC (minimum safety and health requirements at temporary or mobile construction sites)
Countries included with national reports are the following:
Austria, Belgium and Luxembourg, Denmark, Finland, France, Greece, Germany, Ireland, Italy, The Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and theUnited Kingdom.
The publication includes the conclusions of the Milan Conference on construction safety coordination, the keynote speech and all European papers on the same subject.
The conclusions of the conference have been placed at the beginning of the booklet in consideration of their importance and relevance. They were discussed in a special session organised during the conference involving the participation of all authors of European papers, and were presented on the last day.
During this special session, all authors were offered a post-conference opportunity to adjust their papers and a deadline was stipulated. Some authors did indeed make alterations, which have been included in this publication.
The publication also contains two new papers on construction safety coordination, one from France, which was presented orally at the conference but was not included in the summary of the proceedings, and one from Austria that was unable to be presented on the day. These two papers were received and reviewed in the post-conference activities of CIB W099.
In all national reports the following sections are included:
. Accident statistics
. Legal framework
. Role of those involved in safety and health matters in construction
. The new documents of safety and health prevention (The Prior Notice, The Safety and Health Plan, The Safety and Health File
. Benefits achieved after enacting Directive 92/57/EEC
. Recommendations and Conclusions
