Design Risk Management

Design Risk Management

Design Risk Management is a requirement of the CDM Regulations in the UK and of the Safety, Health & Welfare at Work Regulations in the Republic of Ireland.

The aim of Design Risk Management is to identify hazards early on, so they can be eliminated or reduced at the design or planning stage and the remaining risks can be properly managed. By ensuring that Risk Management is incorporated throughout the design process, a client can be confident that the project will be completed safely, on time, and within their budget.

Traffic Management

Each year many people are injured and at least ten people die as a result of traffic accidents in construction, this not only impacts families and communities, but as an employer there are many economic and social consequences that follow.

In order to aim to eliminate the risks associated with vehicles on construction sites, a good Traffic Management Plan is put in place for the site. This will cover plans for all types of vehicle and pedestrian access and movement throughout the site, ensuring that the two remain separated. The Traffic Management Plan will also provide suitable guidance for signage, restriction set-up, access/egress arrangements, and emergency procedures.

Health & Safety Audits

Every Business no matter how big or small needs to ensure that it follows good health, safety and environmental practices. Auditing is a structured way used to verify the efficiency, effectiveness and reliability of an organisation’s occupational health, safety and environmental management system. The aim of an Audit is to ensure the business’s safety management system is being effectively implemented in order to manage and reduce the risks of accidents and ill health occurring in the workplace. Audits also ensure that sustainable environmental practices are being followed.

Construction Safety Audits

Construction Safety Audits are carried out to get an overall scope of the construction process from solicitation of bids to final payment. Not only looking for cost recoveries or over billing but also to provide process improvement recommendations for the project management team. Seven aspects considered when carrying out a site audit are:

    • Notices and Signage
    • Isolating Areas
    • Creating Walkways
    • Chemical Containment
    • Having a Plan
    • Safety Equipment
