ANSI/ASSE A10.1-2011 Pre-Project & Pre-Task Safety and Health Planning
The new standard, "Pre-Project and Pre-Task Safety and Health Planning for Construction and Demolition Operations" (ANSI/ASSE A10.1-2011), establishes the elements and activities for pre-project and pre-task safety and health planning in construction.
The standard received final ANSI approval on December 16, 2011 and is planned to take effect during June 2012.
The standard is one of a series of safety standards that have been formulated by the A10 Accredited Standards Committee on Safety Requirements for Construction and Demolition operations. The A10 standards serve as a guide to contractors, labor and equipment manufacturers.
The primary purpose of this standard is to assist construction owners, project constructors and contractors in making pre-project and pre-task safety and health planning a standard part of their planning processes. This standard is also intended to assist owners in establishing a process for evaluating project constructor candidate safety and health performance and planning practices.
