Managing safety in design in infrastructure projects

Start time: 6:00pm AEST. Understand why safety in design is a key consideration that influences all stages of an infrastructure project and is a critical benefit to successful project outcomes.
Managing safety in design in infrastructure projects

Please note that the Face to Face component of this event has been cancelled and will continue via Webinar Only.

At this event, the presenters will discuss specific infrastructure projects currently under construction, or recently completed, so you will gain an understanding of the Safety in Design implementations that reflect the most current practice and hear of lessons learnt from recently completed projects.

You will gain insight into the latest initiatives of Safety in Design in selected infrastructure projects containing civil engineering works, drainage, retaining walls and bridge structures.

As Australia’s infrastructure boom continues to grow, exercising a contemporary understanding of Safety in Design (SiD) that fulfils dynamic project requirements has become an increasing challenge for project engineers.

During this session, our panel discussion will explore the critical value of SiD, provide an insight into contemporary SiD procedures, processes etc, explain management strategies employed across a range of major infrastructure projects and understand why versatility in SiD is essential across project lifecycle stages.

The depth of experience of the panel will provide attendees with a holistic understanding of SiD’s critical benefit to successful project outcomes. This discussion will be applicable to multiple civil and associated structural sectors (not just infrastructure).
