Safety in Design
In response to global concerns and new regulations regarding safety issues in the design of plant and equipment, Enterprise Risk Management Solutions (erms) has developed an innovative new training program to introduce the principles of Safety in Design (SiD).
Statistics from studies conducted by Australian and UK safety authorities indicated design-related issues contributed to 37% fatalities studied and 30% of serious non-fatal injuries.
Further studies show that half of all accidents in construction activities could have been prevented by designer intervention. Equipment designers of tools, plant and equipment could have reduced the risk in 60 of 100 accidents.
At erms we help our clients though tailored training and this course, for mining, oil and gas, rail, and other major infrastructure, covers the following:
- What is Safety in Design?
- The Benefits of SiD
- SiD Requirements
- WHS Requirements
- Compliance with Statutory Obligations
- Compliant Process.
Benefits of attendance
This course includes an understanding of the principles of Safety in Design which help to eliminate the costs of rework, inefficiency, failure to satisfy legal obligations and retrofitting safety solutions.
Who should attend?
Engineering managers, engineers, designers, O&M representatives or contract managers, safety professionals involved in prevention rather than incident investigation.
