Safety in Design
OHS Solutions has been a leader in training and facilitation on Safety in Design for many years.
Safe design is a strategy for preventing injuries and disease by considering hazards as early as possible In the planning and design process. Work Health and Safety legislation requires designers to identify hazards and implement controls during the design phase of the construction process. OHS Solutions provides:
- training on Safety in Design
- facilitation of Safety in Design review meetings
- review of Safety in Design procedures and templates.
