Short description: EXTRACT: This publication provide the UK construction industry with a set and defined process for the management of risks associated with UXO from WWI and WWII aerial bombardment. It is also broadly applicable to the risks from other forms of UXO that might be encountered. It focuses on the needs of the construction professional if there is a suspected UXO on site and covers issues such as what to expect from an UXO specialist. This guidance helps clients to fulfil thier legal duty under CDM2007 to provide designers and contractors with project specific health and safety information needed to identify hazards and risks associated with the design and construction work. The possibility of UXO being encountered on a site falls within the category of a potentially significant risk, and it should be addressed as early as possible in the lifecycle of a project.
