Managing Health & Safety Risks (No. 10): Common design hazards

With care, engineers can reduce the risks to those who construct, maintain, use and demolish structures. Generally, we can presume that the strength and stability of finished structures will be assured by compliance with design codes. The greatest hazards to design out are those encountered during construction or demolition, or ones inherent in structure use.
