Design Risk Management

18 September 2012

2:00 PM - 4:30 PM


Harry Hems Centre, Longbrook Street, Exeter EX4 6AP


Designers are often misled about risk assessments in the design process from a poor understanding of how construction safety relates to the general application of health and safety under the Health and Safety at Work Etc Act 1974. The key to correct application of health and safety legislation in design is to focus on design risk management as required under the Management Regulations and the CDM Regulations.

This seminar will focus on the process for design risk management and how designers can discharge their duties under health and safety legislation (including the CDM Regulations).

This session will include:

  • Update on statistics
  • The HASAWA as the umbrella legislation in construction
  • Construction-specific safety legislations
  • Legislation to be considered by designers
  • Design risk management - the process
  • Design risk management (good practice) v design risk assessment (bad practice)

    This will be supported by real-life examples.

  • Speaker: Danny Coomber, Butler & Young Consultants. Danny's training credentials derive from practical service delivery experience. With over 30 years' experience working in the construction industry, Danny has been involved with building and civil engineering projects overseas and in the UK often of an innovative and non-traditional nature at various management levels. This provides him with unique experiences for the management of health, safety and welfare in general and the application of the CDM Regulations in particular.
