Report: Improving designers' knowledge of hazards

This IOSH study focuses on how building designs can be modified to be safer to build while still retaining their design, this practice is defined as Designing for OSH (DfOSH). In this particular field many designers do not have the construction knowledge needed to understand how their designs could impact occupational safety and health (OSH).


The aim of this research was to improve how designers involved in construction projects learn about how their design influences the management of OSH once the design is implemented.



The method involved the development of a multi-media digital tool for educating designers on typical design-related hazards.
