This seminar will provide a refresher on the work health and safety legislation in relation to designer responsibilities and discuss how designers can achieve a safe design approach in their projects.

The focus will include what designers should endeavour to eliminate from the workplace and design innovations which can create productive workplaces free from injury and disease. The seminar will address methods of communicating safe design in documents, plans and reports to ensure that design intent is not lost in the build process.
