The Construction Industry Advisory Committee (CONIAC) has published new fire risk management guidance about Fire Safety on Construction Sites.
The guidance is based on the well-established principles of Plan, Do, Check and Act (PDCA) and HSE’s fire safety in construction guidance.
It aims to help those with fire safety roles and responsibilities under The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 (CDM) to embed fire risk reduction measures from the design stage through to project completion.
Hosted on the new CONIAC website, the guidance is free to download at:
