Managing Risk By Incorporating Safety In Design
David Trembearth, Safety Business Partner, People and Product Safety, Coles.
Tuesday 13 June 2017
Poorly designed work is unsafe work. Many times simple but important aspects are overlooked in the project planning stage, setting the scene for future problems. Someone dedicated to spreading this message is David Trembearth, Safety Business Partner, People and Product Safety, Coles, who will speak to the Central Safety Group on Tuesday 13 June. David will talk about how safety in design can make a difference, and discuss the key elements of good safety design both from a people management perspective and an organisational perspective. “If safety practitioners are not thinking and practising safety in design they are missing an important safety element in their approach” states David. Putting safety in design at the forefront of project management and at the concept stage is crucial to risk reduction, and David will outline some of the steps in optimising safety when designing and managing a project.
