Hong Kong had a very bad record in construction safety in the 1980s and before. Since the early 1990s, a number of statutory regulations have been enforced in order to improve safety in Hong Kong's construction industry. The results of these efforts can gradually be seen, and this is evidenced by the significant drop in construction accidents in recent years.

This book is important in keeping construction professionals informed about Hong Kong's experience in construction safety. It begins with an overview of safety management systems generally adopted in the Asian context with the support of construction accident statistics from a number of countries or cities. Other topics include factors which influence site safety programmes, construction safety management systems, safety legislation, safety auditing, the procedure of accident investigation, the Hong Kong government's mandatory SSPS (Site Supervision Plan System) that all contractors and authorized persons/registered structural engineers have to follow, and construction safety economics.
