PSDP - Project Supervisor Design Process

The Project Supervisor Design Process must be an individual or body corporate i.e. a limited company and is appointed by the client to oversee the coordination of the design work before design work commences.  

In all cases the person or company undertaking the role must have the necessary competence to carry out the relevant duties to ensure effectiveness in addressing and co-ordinating health and safety matters from the very early stage of the project.

How can we help?

Ashview Consultants carry out the duties of the Project Supervisor for the Design Process (PSDP), ensuring all the health and safety aspects of your project from the design and planning stage, including preparation of the preliminary safety and health plan are coordinated and managed correctly.

How do we do it?

  • Meeting and advising the client on their duties and responsibilities under the Construction Regulation and the Safety, Health & Welfare act 2005.
  • Assisting the client in the assessment of competency and sufficiency of designers in accordance with the regulations.
  • Using our project specific risk register we identify hazards arising from the design process and where possible, we eliminate the hazards or reduce the risks.
  • Communicate clearly and effectively and control measures or remaining risks to the PSCS so they can be managed through the safety and health plan.
  • Coordinate the work between designers and design interfaces.
  • Prepare the preliminary safety and health plan.
