Safety in Design Myth-busting – Legislative Requirements, Risk Control and Responsibilities

Safety in Design – is it a BAU or much more than that?

Get it right the first time!

Opportunities to create safer workplaces are most effective when identified, assessed and documented in the earliest phases of the product life cycle.

The most effective risk control measure is to eliminate the hazard. This is often cheaper and more practical to achieve early at the design or planning stage, rather than making changes later in the life cycle.

During this presentation, the following points will be addressed and case studies to shed light on some popular myths.

a. What is the legislative requirement?
b. Why is safe design important for risk management?
