Addresses how to build safety into the job, right from the design stage through production.
Safety Through Design discusses the need to design safety into the job, rather than retrofit. Your company policies should be such that safety, health and environmental concerns can be designed and built-in, rather than added after the job/product has been put into operation.
You'll learn how each level of engineering should be given the responsibility for building safety into the job, right through the production phase. In addition, you'll find out how responsibility extends to product design, machine design, plant layout and condition of premises, selection and specification of materials, production planning, and duties of managers and employees.
Safety Through Design is an important text addressing the leading edge in safety theory and implementation. This manual is a must read for engineers, managers and safety practitioners.
