Hi everyone, Cite HR has been of great help for me. I have learned a lot of things which improved my knowledge in different areas apart from HSE. Thanks once again for all your support - I have another requirement as well. Can anyone please provide me a list of all the applicable laws for construction industry with the latest versions.
thanks and regards, vamsi akunuri

Dear Mr.Vamsi,
Check the Annexure B of IS 15793-2007 this will give u a good idea. As per OHSAS and EMS standards u have to know the section and rule which is applicable as per your activities and u should show the compliance pertaining to that.

Narayana
