Safety in Design - Requirements of WH&S Legislation

This four-hour workshop focuses on safety in the engineering design process and provides a detailed understanding of workplace obligations under the new Work Health and Safety Legislation.
Safety in Design - Requirements of WH&S Legislation

The federal model Work, Health and Safety (WH&S) Legislation as implemented by each of the states and territories has led to a greater emphasis on hazards being identified in the design process. This requires engineers to consider the potential risks involved in the life of a design, to ensure it is safe to build, operate, maintain, and demolish a structure/building/plant.

This four-hour workshop focuses on safety in the engineering design process and provides a detailed understanding of workplace obligations under the new Work Health and Safety Legislation. It takes a systematic approach to the implementation of risk management and covers the processes described in ISO 31000, which is based on the world's first Australian Risk Management Standard AS4360.

Upon successful completion, you’ll be able to implement the tools, practices and techniques for safe designs. Through case studies and exercises, you'll be able to understand how safety in design fits into risk management.
