I am feeling pleasure in bringing the second edition of the book "Safety, Occupational Health and Environmental Management in Construction". The first edition with three reprints of the book received good response from the readers. In order to make the book more useful and to incorporate the changes make in the syllabi of some universities, certain matter have also been added, especially related to "Fire Safety", "Electrical Safety" and "Environment and Development".
