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 is achieved by working closely with the Engineering Leadership Group to determine strategic priorities: how, where and when to supply members with related resources, training and events. Topics may include:
- Structural safety and risk
- The climate emergency
- Impact of regulatory changes on structural design and construction
This Committee also provides direction and oversight of the Sustainability; Safety, Health and Wellbeing; Humanitarian and International Development; Research; Seismic and Dynamic Events Panels and is involved with Collaborative Reporting for Safer Structures UK (CROSS-UK) and the Institution Study Groups.
The constitution of the Committee aims to reflect the diversity of the Institutions membership and to provide different perspectives.
- Vice Chair
- Chairs of reporting Panels
- Up to 28 other members (including members of various grades and those based in different locations)
We invite expressions of interest in Committee membership each September, contacting all members except Student Members.

Members of the Committee are expected to fully participate in supporting and driving the panels activities forward.
There are many ways that you can contribute to the activities of the group, and you will be expected to do some work outside the meetings, for example drafting or reviewing guidance and keeping up to date on the latest developments around the topics the Committee is involved with.
Contact the Committee if you have questions about their work.
