The role of the engineer either as a designer or construction manager generally provides the best opportunity to identify the hazards that cause injury or damage. Part of this task includes ensuring for design features and modifications that will minimize hazardous conditions during construction and life of the structure. Identifying the hazards that most commonly endanger the users during the life cycle of the building facility is the primary objective of this book.
