Safety in Design (SID) is a system that integrates hazard identification and risk assessment methods early in the design process. SID considers how to eliminate, isolate or minimise the risks of death, injury and ill health to those who will construct, operate, maintain, decommission or demolish an asset. Safety Solutions can facilitate your Safety in Design review using our experienced facilitators.
Most construction safety risk mitigation is aimed at isolating, informing of or controlling the hazard. The opportunity to consider the life cycle of the project and involve decision makers in the early design stages to eliminate a hazard is invaluable. The earlier you can begin this process in the design stages, the easier it is to make changes that benefit everyone. The design stage offers the greatest opportunity to incorporate improvements that can produce time and cost savings over the life of the asset.
The SID review is a critical step in the lifecycle of a project where a team is assembled and brainstorming exercise is carried out by applying guidewords to various aspects of the design and construction. The hazards and risks are evaluated as part of this process.
