Description:Sets out requirements for the planned demolition of buildings and certain other structures so that the risk of injury to the public and site personnel, and the risk of damage to adjacent property and the immediate environment, is minimized. Does not apply to major civil engineering structures such as bridges or dams. Covers the methods and safety procedures which are applicable to demolition works in general, as well as deemed-to-satisfy procedures for some types of structures and members. Deals with both manual and mechanical demolition techniques including those employing specialized earthmoving-type machinery. Also includes a number of informative appendices covering the demolition of prestressed concrete structures, some contractual considerations, qualifications of site personnel and a contractor checklist.
