This standard provides a framework for a construction safety program for use on
DOE construction projects that will comply with the requirements of DOE Order
440.1A, Worker Protection Management for DOE Federal and Contractor Employees,
its accompanying Guide, DOE G 440.1-2, Construction Safety Management Guide For
Use With DOE Order 440.1, and DOE Policy 450.4, Safety Management System
The intent of this standard is to provide an effective methodology for managing the
hazards inherent to construction work in a systematic manner that can be easily
integrated with the management of other technical aspects of a construction project.
It is written in a manner that facilitates its direct incorporation into the specifications
of construction contracts between the DOE and construction contractors or DOE
M&O contractors and their construction subcontractors.
This standard applies to construction contractors and their subcontractors performing
work on DOE construction projects.
(a) 29 CFR 1926.14, which prescribes that construction safety standards apply to the
construction portions of Federal contracts for mixed performance (e.g., a
contract for both manufacturing and construction services).
