The Institution of Structural Engineers Health and Safety Panel

We read about (and maybe unfortunately witness) people being hurt or killed; these events have an immediate effect on a company or project. Accidents may be recorded and analysed, often within a short time of their occurrence. It is no surprise therefore that traditionally, the industry has seen the improvement of accident statistics as representing a true measure of improvement in health and safety performance.

Temporary works and the structural engineer

Whilst, for most projects, contractors and temporary works designers are the lead players, permanent works designers will always play at least two important roles: a technical one (the design of the permanent works determines what temporary works are needed and what the primary loads will be) and a managerial one (ensuring that appropriate contractual provision and arrangements are in place). John Carpenter outlines the important (and often unsung) role that temporary works play in a construction project.
