An Engineering Education Australia training course:
Published in 2002, Australian statistics revealed that within the construction industry there were too many incidents, injuries and fatalities that could have been averted at the design stages.
This led to the model Work, Health and Safety (WHS) Legislation having more explicit duties of designers, which require engineers and designers to consider the hazards involved throughout the life of an asset to ensure ‘so far as is reasonably practicable’ that it is safe to build, test, commission, operate, maintain and demolish.
A repeat study published in 2012 revealed that little had changed since 2002.
This one-day workshop focuses on how to practically implement Safety in Design throughout the end-to-end engineering and design processes, and it describes the importance of systematic approaches. You will learn about the tools, practices and techniques that give rise to safer design outcomes, and hence help you comply with the duties and obligations under WHS Legislation and the equivalent legislation in WA and Victoria.
During the workshop, you'll be exposed to case studies to help you understand how Safety in Design contributes to minimising the likelihood of workplace incidents, injuries and fatalities, and hence contributes to overall risk reduction.
Who should attend?
This one-day workshop is suitable for design engineers, project managers, design managers, procurement or contracts personnel, engineering consultants, architects and safety and risk managers.
This workshop is also suitable for contractors involved in the construction industry as well as those who procure, own operate and maintain infrastructure, so that they know what to expect from designers, manufactures, constructors and suppliers.
