The American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE), Des Plaines, Ill., announced the availability of the newly revised American National Standard Institute (ANSI) A10.6-2006 standard, Safety Requirements for Demolition for Construction and Demolition Operations, approved by ANSI on Sept. 11, 2006.

The ANSI/ASSE 10.6-2006 standard is one of a series of safety standards that focus on construction and demolition operations. The latest version of the standard provides minimum requirements to protect and safeguard employees and the public, and to prevent property damage that may occur during demolition operations as it applies to the demolition of buildings and other structures. The A10.6 standard also complements the newly reaffirmed ANSI A10.7-1998 standard, Commercial Explosives and Blasting Agents—Safety Requirements for Transportation, Storage and Handling and Use.

ASSE serves as the secretariat for the A10 Accredited Standards Committee on construction and demolition operations. The A10 standards serve as a guide to contractors, labor and equipment manufacturers in the construction and demolition industry.

The standard will be available in both print and electronic format.
