Current Work, Health and Safety (WH&S) Legislation as implemented by each of the states and territories has a greater emphasis on identifying hazards in the design process. The legislation requires engineers to consider the potential risks involved during the life of a design to ensure that it is safe to build, operate, maintain and demolish. This four-hour course focuses on safety in the engineering design process and provides a detailed understanding of the designers’ obligations under the WH&S Legislation. It takes a systematic approach to the implementation of risk management and covers the processes described in ISO 31000 which is based on AS 4360 which was the world’s first risk management standard. Some of the concepts and available tools are discussed (including the concept of SFAIRP).
This course concentrates on the practical application of the WH&S Legislation by designers. Upon successful completion, you should have a greater understanding of the tools, practices and techniques to implement safe designs. Through case studies and exercises you should gain an understanding of how safety and design fits into the risk management framework.
