Safety-in-design is a statutory responsibility for all those involved in building services design and construction, so it is important that we have effective end-to-end procedures that manage our safety-in-design responsibilities.
While safety-in-design objectives are easy to understand, in practice, managing these responsibilities is difficult within a construction project context, especially with design and construction contracts. AMCA members engineering and site installation procedures and supporting work instructions need to detail processes to manage their safety-in-design responsibilities.
This paper provides additional practical guidance for the effective management of our members’ safety-in-design responsibilities through the project bid and delivery phases.
