Contractor Safety Management

Contractor Safety Management

Gregory William Smith

December 14, 2013

Contractor safety management is often seen as nothing more than a subset of general safety management in that no special consideration needs to be given to understanding the difficulties of the contract environment. This leaves contractors endlessly juggling competing and sometimes contradictory...

Hydraulic Engineering II
