Mike,

Yes, there's a lot of information there. It is just one of the items that they offer. I figured there is some good info for discussion here.

The following page has many others - they're offered for sale by them, but can also be downloaded for free (select one and click the 'Download' button)

Interesting bit on House-keeping in that document:
Regulations for safe housekeeping require:
  • Daily jobsite cleanup program
  • Disposal of rubbish
  • Individual cleanup duties for all workers
  • Materials piled, stacked, or otherwise stored to prevent tipping and collapsing
  • Materials stored away from overhead powerlines
  • Work and travel areas kept tidy, well-lit, and ventilated.
  • Signs posted to warn workers of hazardous areas.
  • Gather up and remove debris as often as required to keep work and travel areas orderly.
  • Keep equipment and the areas around equipment clear of scrap and waste.
  • Keep stairways, passageways, and gangways free of material, supplies, and obstructions at all times.
  • Secure loose or light materials stored on roof or on open floors to prevent them being blown by the wind.
  • Pick up, store, or dispose of tools, material, or debris which may cause tripping or other hazards.
  • Before handling used lumber, remove or bend over protruding nails and chip away hardened concrete.
  • Wear eye protection when there is any risk of eye injury.
  • Do not permit rubbish to fall freely from any level of the project. Lower it by means of a chute or other approved devices.
  • Do not throw materials or tools from one level to another.

One day when the new 2 storey cinema was being built in town here, I was there hooking some things up and I was heading outside to get some heatshrink tubing.
A guy behind me called out to me to have a chat about a couple of circuits when all of a sudden a 8 x 2 plank fell just outside the doorway.
Apparently the builders on the roof were using it to hold down a sheet of alkathene and the wind had caught the sheet.
I had no problems shouting that guy a beer.
Even though I was wearing a hard-hat at the time, I don't think it would have helped.
Lot of wieght in a 12 ft plank. [Linked Image]
