    SAUDI ARAMCO CONSTRUCTION SAFETY MANUAL

    PREFACE Dhahran, Saudi Arabia

    February, 1993

    The purpose of the Saudi Aramco Construction Safety Manual (CSM) is to prevent injury, loss of life, and damage to assets. This is the fourth revision of the CSM. Since its 1974 introduction, the Construction Safety Manual has provided safety criteria for all construction work performed by Saudi Aramco and its contractors.

    Many of the requirements in this manual detail the need for Saudi Aramco services or equipment. Where references indicate that certain equipment (fall protection, safety shoes, etc.) should be provided or services rendered (bio-monitoring, etc.), the intent is that contractors must provide equivalent equipment or services (as approved by Saudi Aramco) from their own resources.

    The construction industry functions in a dynamically changing work environment in which updating of equipment and standards is a continuous process resulting from changes in operating variables, regulatory requirements, and safety practices. Although this manual has been updated to reflect the latest Saudi Aramco and construction industry practices, as time goes on there may be a need to consider new procedures, standards, or operating conditions. Such new developments, including potential conflicts with existing provisions, should be referred to the Loss Prevention Department for resolution. The Loss Prevention Department will issue interim revisions or updates where appropriate.

    Good loss prevention is an integral part of good project management. For our projects and maintenance programs to proceed safely, all Saudi Aramco and contractor personnel involved in construction activities, whether management or line employees, need to understand and follow the provisions in this Manual. Only with the active commitment of everyone can we ensure that Saudi Aramco maintains the safest possible work environment.

    Senior Vice President, Engineering and Project Management
