Prevention of Ill Health through Design – A Practical Approach for Designers

The disproportionate harms caused by ill health need a considered response from the industry. This CPD event is for Designers, Principal Designers and Clients involved with developing designs for construction projects who want to play their part in reducing harms caused to construction workers by just turning up to work every day.

The seminar will lay out the causes of ill health in the construction industry in the UK and, using illustrations, identify practical steps that those responsible for developing designs can take to prevent or reduce the harms to which construction workers and the public are exposed. This practical study will also include issues that need to be considered to address the well-being of those construction project after practical completion, i.e. those maintaining, refurbishing and demolishing the structure. The
health of those using structures as workplaces will also be addressed. The material presented will be structured around the heirachy of choices offered by the General Principles of Prevention and assist designers to understand the need to address design risk management in a proportionate way as they meet their CDM obligations to eliminate risk and reduce risk ‘so far as is reasonably practicable’.

This is a recording of the seminar that was run around the UK earlier this year.
