Planning and organizing construction works in a safe manner requires knowledge of a number of standards, legal regulations and engineering knowledge. In order to meet the needs, the Agreement for Construction Safety has developed a package of standards for safe work. They contain information useful at all stages of designing, planning, organizing and performing works. They constitute a compendium of knowledge arising from the experience and many years of practice of companies being members of the Agreement. Among the developed standards there are excavation works, at heights, in vertical transport and the organisation of a construction site.
