The Institution of Structural Engineers' Health and Safety Panel
What is it that makes a structure safe and how can “safety” be tested? It is not just “compliance with codes” in the sense of keeping stresses low, for codes of practice also define (or implicitly try to promote) other useful attributes and it is incumbent on professional engineers to achieve those objectives within their designs.
I am delighted to have been invited to contribute an editorial to The Structural Engineer introducing a new series of articles on an important aspect of construction projects that does not always receive the attention it deserves. We intend the “Temporary Works Toolkit” to describe the issues and current practice in temporary works and construction method engineering.
All the articles published in the October 2016 issue.
This months letters consider the Eurocodes - both their current application and future; presentation skills when addressing a lay audience; responsibilities of structural engineers and steel detailers; and the value of creativity in a structural engineer's education.
