Webinar 3 focuses on the be safe theme
This presentation provides insights from leading safety in design consultants into implementation best practices followed by two case studies from a University setting to demonstrate the application of safety in design outcomes in our industry.
The effective application of safety in design early in the a project’s lifecycle provides the optimal solution in terms of safety, cost and quality of the final structure and operation by end users including maintenance teams. Applying the steps in the Code of Practice will demonstrate a due diligence approach to fulfilling duties under the relevant OHS/WHS Act. The challenge for safety professionals is often, not what is required, but how can this be effectively implemented in the organisation you are working for.
