The American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) announced Tuesday the availability of four construction standards covering requirements for safety and health programs, work platforms suspended from cranes and derricks, portable heating devices, and concrete and masonry work.

Reaffirmed by the American National Standard Institute (ANSI) in June, these four standards are the latest completed projects from the A10 Accredited Standards Committee (ASC) Safety Requirements for Construction and Demolition Operations. ASSE serves as secretariat of the A10 Committee.

  • The A10.33-1992 (R2004) standard Safety and Health Program Requirements for Multi-Employer Projects provides guidelines for the basic duties of senior contractors and project supervisors in providing a safe construction workplace. The standard covers senior supervisor responsibilities, corrective actions and presence at a project, as well as site safety and health requirements, disciplinary procedures, construction process plans, training and pre-work plans.

  • The A10.9-1997 (R2004) standard Safety Requirements for Masonry and Concrete Work covers concrete construction and masonry work safety requirements from concrete placement and shoring to the handling and storage of pre-stressed and pre-cast concrete. It addresses the design, erection, operation and maintenance of concrete mixing processing plants, machinery used in transportation and aggregate processing plants.

  • The A10.28-1998 (R2004) standard Safety Requirements for Work Platforms Suspended from Cranes or Derricks sets safety guidelines to ensure workers are safe while being transported to an elevated work site and while working on a suspended platform from cranes and derricks.

  • The A10.10-1998 (R2004) standard Safety Requirements for Temporary and Portable Space Heating Devices establishes construction operation guidelines for the safe use and inspection of portable and temporary space heater equipment that runs on solid fuel, liquid fuel, natural gas and liquefied petroleum gas.
