The main purpose of the handbook is to explain, in plain language, how to develop safe work
practices and how to meet the statutory and common contract requirements in undertaking
construction site set up works. It is not intended to cover each and every type of workplace
scenario, nor to be used as a pictorial guide of do’s and don’ts. The focus is to address the
most common – and hence more accident-prone - hazards found in worksites.
