Safe design doesn’t have to be boring!

Safe design can prevent injury, improve productivity and usability, reduce costs, and help manage production and operations of your design projects.

But most importantly, it incorporates innovative, best practice design principles.

As building designers, safe design also helps you meet your obligations under Work Health and Safety (WHS) legislation. Why? Because you have a legal duty to do so.
