Design Practice, Risk & Structural Safety Committee

Our Design Practice, Risk and Structural Safety Committee helps shape the Institution’s technical strategy in areas that impact the practical design of structures in current practice.

The committee works closely with the Engineering Leadership Group and the Head of Technical Secretariat Services to determine strategic priorities: how, where and when to supply members with related resources, training and events. 

The committee ensures that the Institution's technical strategy (in relation to design, risk and structural safety matters) is implemented through a programme of activities and initiatives.

This Committee also provides direction and oversight of the Sustainability, Safety, Health and Wellbeing, Humanitarian and International Development, Research, Seismic and Dynamic Events panels as well as Structural-Safety and Study Groups.
