Construction Safety Standards Construction safety standards is a rather broad term, since much of what contributes to safety in this setting is handled by separate technical committees responsible for their respective industries or equipment (i.e. Cranes, “…particularly in respect of terminology, load rating, testing, safety…”) The standards below are a representative selection of safety standards commonly used in construction and demolition.

ANSI/ASA S2.73-2014/ISO 10819:2013
Mechanical vibration and shock - Hand-arm vibration - Measurement and evaluation of the vibration transmissibility of gloves at the palm of the hand (a nationally adopted international standard)
This American National Standard specifies a method for the laboratory measurement, data analysis, and reporting of the vibration transmissibility of a glove with a vibration-reducing material that covers the palm, fingers, and thumb of the hand. This American National Standard specifies vibration transmissibility in terms of vibration transmitted from a handle through a glove to the palm of the hand in one-third-octave frequency bands with center frequencies of 25 Hz to 1,250 Hz.

ANSI S3.44-1996 (R 2006)
Determination of Occupational Noise Exposure and Estimation of Noise-Induced Hearing Impairment (with Erratum)
The standard is an adaptation of the international standard ISO 1999:1990(E) of the same name. Unlike the international standard, this standard allows assessment of noise exposure using a time/intensity trading relation other than a 3-decibel increase per halving of exposure time. This standard presents, in statistical terms, the relationship between noise exposures and changes in hearing threshold levels for a noiseexposed population. This standard can also be applied to the calculation of the risk of incurring hearing handicap from sustained daily exposure to noise. Guidance is provided as to the measurement of noise exposure.

ASTM F1637-13
Standard Practice for Safe Walking Surfaces
1.1 This practice covers design and construction guidelines and minimum maintenance criteria for new and existing buildings and structures. This practice is intended to provide reasonably safe walking surfaces for pedestrians wearing ordinary footwear. These guidelines may not be adequate for those with certain mobility impairments. 1.2 Conformance with this practice will not alleviate all hazards; however, conformance will reduce certain pedestrian risks. 1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard. 1.4 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 limitations prior to use.
