Fixings are widely used in construction and include those that are safety-critical and non safety-critical. The case studies in this guide provide evidence that incorrect performance of safetycritical fixings can contribute to structural failures, including several high-profile fatal accidents. This guide aims to improve the management of safety-critical fixings and to highlight how good design and installation can minimise risks in-service.
Recommendations are made on the management process for existing fixings, and also to complementary existing industry standards and guidance for new design and installation. This guide is aimed at competent practitioners responsible for the management of assets and those involved in design of structures and fixings.
