Understanding Design Risk Management

26 April 2012

1:30 PM - 4:30 PM


MADE, 7 Newhall Square, Birmingham B3 1RU


Designer's are often mislead 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 Regs).

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) vs 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 hands 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
