WHAT IS SAFE DESIGN?

The role of JMG Safety Management delivers the coordination of the risk audit process, liaison with the design team, follow up and collation of the report for final presentation. In some instances there may be a final inspection of the project to account for outcomes nominated in the audit.

The Safety in Design process can be time consuming, however allowing JMG Safety Management specialists to deliver the process reduces the designers’ compliance burden releasing them to focus on great design work.

BUILDING LIFECYCLE

SiD covers the four periods of a buildings lifecycle:
Design, Construction, Occupancy, Demolition.

From a risk management perspective changes made in the design phase to eliminate or reduce risk have greatest impact and are the most cost effective.

-- Control and influence

-- Lifecycle of designated products

-- Systematic risk management

-- Knowledge and capability

-- Information transfer and feedback

WHAT CLIENTS MUST CONSIDER

Clients also have an obligation under the act to transfer information on hazards and risk. Regulation 3.139 defines the Client’s commissioning design / construction work as part of a trade or business to ensure information given to them on OSH is provided to the main contractor and / or the party who obtains the final product, information that relates to:

Identifying hazards that a person on the construction site is likely to be exposed
Assessing the risk of injury or harm to a person exposed to the hazards
Considering the means of controlling those risks
