Friday's letter from Lesley: 21st April

I have been living on a building site for a month or so now. With work on the new build development into which I've move still going on around me it's given me ample time to see many of the trades in action. I appreciate how difficult it must be to get people to focus on this aspect of the project when there is no concrete risk - and I mean this both literally and metaphorically - and that some clients may try to adopt the 'it will be all right on the night' approach. But it is clear to me that retrofitting safety is both costly and risky. Ultimately, it gets in the way of the project itself. APS members have a vital role in ensuring health and safety risk management is incorporated at the design stage and if you have a great story to tell we are waiting to showcase your efforts. There is still plenty time to enter this year's awards so get entering so we can show the world the value of your work.
