Title of CPD course

WEBINAR SERIES: CONSTRUCTION REGULATIONS

Presenter

Frans Dekker

Course information (Content/Overview)

The webinar series will assist the architectural professional to maintain, develop and increase knowledge, problem solving, technical skills or professional performance standards regarding the application of the re-quirements of Construction Regulations 2014 published in terms of the Occupational Health Act.

 

According to Prof. John Smallwood (NMMU):

• Although not inherently dangerous, there are numerous hazards and risks in construction

• Systems, procedures and other strategies can mitigate and, or eliminate the hazards and risks –designing for construction H&S and ergonomics is one such strategy

• Design dictates the materials and methods to be used • Design occurs upstream of procurement and construction

• Designers act / contribute during procurement and construction in addition to during design

• H&S issues apply / arise during all phases of pro-jects: concept and initiation; detailed design and documentation; construction, and commissioning

• Design contributes to fatalities –design (in general) is cited as the cause of 35% of fatal accidents due to the 35% contribution of falls from heights to fatalities (Commission of the European communities, 1993)

• 450 Reports of construction fatalities and disabling injuries in the USA –151 (33.6%) cases, the hazard that contributed to the incident could have been eliminated or reduced if design-for-H&S measures had been implemented (Behm, 2006)

• Designing for H&S’ is a recognised competency
