Similarly, for an off-site yard, lifts, trucks, and heavy loading equipments become the main tools of construction (Mincks and Johnston 155). The role of geotechnical engineers is very important in choosing the best site for construction. Geotechnical engineering is a field of study within the parameters of civil engineering and is related directly with the study of behavior of earth materials and finding solutions for behaviors of rocks and soil present at any particular part of land. Sometimes, the irregular behavior of rocks and soil gives rise to land contamination issues where some hazardous chemical substances, heavy metals, and hydrocarbons crop up at concentrations above the background levels. Geotechnical engineers need to address these issues in order to make constructions sites safe for life. In this paper, we will discuss the role of geotechnical engineering in making a contaminated site ready for construction. There will also be a discussion on the need of health and safety management for employees related to the field of engineering and construction. Geotechnical Engineering Geotechnical engineering is a field of study concerned with the behavior of rocks and soil present at any particular area. ...
