Good engineering design could be the key to reducing workplace accidents in the UK, according to a paper produced by the Inter-Institutional Group on Health and Safety (IIG).

The IIG said that by designing buildings with good health and safety firmly in mind, the UK’s workplaces can become much safer.

Construction firms would no longer have to shoulder the burden of working out all the hazards of a site, and guarding against them, if those hazards had already been accounted for by the design of the building.

One of the projects listed in the paper as examples of this in practice was the London Olympics Velodrome, with its exemplary safely-designed engineering.

Richard Jones, head of policy and public affairs for the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health, said: “Engineering can deliver many of the solutions for keeping work safe, healthy, profitable and sustainable.”ADNFCR-2754-ID-801671235-ADNFCR
