Architects and lead designers are uniquely placed to influence how effectively safety considerations are embedded in design process. In this chapter, the authors consider three key aspects of how the people do this by understanding and ensuring their design process employs: Principles of design risk management, General principles of prevention and Effective communication and coordination. Some of the hazards that the people ought to consider include: Red, amber, green lists provide helpful guidance regarding the nature and type of hazards and risks to consider as part of the people design risk management. The most effective way to embed design risk management in the design process is to deal with it as part and parcel of client and design team meetings. Employing the principles of prevention as part of design development and approach to design risk management targets the elimination, so far as reasonably practicable, of all foreseeable risks associated with the construction, maintenance, occupation and demolition of the people project.
