1.2 The text of this standard references notes and footnotes which provide explanatory material. These notes and footnotes (excluding those in tables and figures) shall not be considered as requirements of the standard.

1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory requirements prior to use. See 4.1 and 5.1-5.1.7 for specific safety information.

Significance and Use

Safety factors must be addressed and incorporated into the work to protect the workers and the public, and construction activities may need to be altered accordingly. Engineering and construction costs are a part of the analysis.

Access rights to the work should be considered in the design of the project.

A construction professional, who has field experience in construction activities similar to the scope of work anticipated, should review the plans for constructability prior to starting the project.

Proper insurance and surety bonding to protect the interests of all parties to the agreement or contract should be considered.

Risk management assessment will identify the parties that are in the best position to control and be responsible for the different risks.
