Many design projects are too large and complex to be fully understood by one person. Various persons with specific skills and expertise may need to be included in the design team or consulted during the design process to fill any knowledge gaps, for example ergonomists, engineers and occupational hygienists. 3.3 Integrating safe design and risk management The design brief should include a requirement to apply a risk management process in the design. The safe design of plant is usually an iterative process. After the initial control measures are incorporated into the design, the design is reviewed to determine whether there are remaining risks and whether redesign can eliminate or minimise these risks (see Figure 1). 3.4 Pre-design and concept development phase This stage of the process involves: Establishing the design context in terms of the purpose of the plant, its functions and limitations Identifying the roles and responsibilities of various parties in relation to the project, and establishing collaborative relationships with clients, manufacturers and users of the plant Conducting research and consultation to assist in identifying hazards, assessing and controlling risks (see section 2.5) Conducting hazard identification SAFE WORK AUSTRALIA MEMBERS’ MEETING 6 30 SEPTEMBER 2010 PAGE 15 OF 52

Figure 1 : A systematic approach to integrating design and risk management SAFE WORK AUSTRALIA MEMBERS’ MEETING 6 30 SEPTEMBER 2010 PAGE 16 OF 52 Establish the design context Conduct research and consultation Pre-design phase Obtain information including: Purpose of the plant, its functions and limitations Data from similar types of plant, test reports WHS legislation, codes of practice, technical standards . Identify hazards associated with the plant Develop prototype or initial design Conceptual and schematic design phase Hazard identification (technical and human factors): Hazardous conditions High consequence hazards Systems of work Plant access and location Abnormal situations. Determine how hazards will be eliminated or minimised through either: (a) implementing solutions from recognised technical Standards; or (b) conducting a risk management process. Design development phase (a) Implement solutions from recognised Standards. Identify hazards that can be adequately addressed by applying solutions/guidance from existing standards if appropriate (b) Conduct a risk assessment process for hazards which have no suitable solutions in recognised Standards or there is poor safety experience with this type of hazard. Final design Have risks been eliminated or minimised so far as is reasonably practicable? Redesign to reduce risks within the designers control. Test, trial or evaluate the design Determine information needs for safety during the lifecycle Design risk controls Yes SS NO

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
