ASSP: Revised standard improves safety of construction, demolition workers
Posted December 9, 2020
A newly revised standard from the American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP) addresses safety and health program requirements for multi-employer projects on construction and demolition sites. It is intended to help employers keep construction workers safe by describing best practices they can implement to take safety programs to the next level.
ANSI/ASSP A10.33-2020, Safety and Health Program Requirements for Multi-Employer Projects, identifies key elements an organization should use to create and manage a safety program in a shared construction project. ASSP says the standard assists project owners, construction supervisors, contractors, and equipment manufacturers.
