Health and Safety Essentials for Design Engineers


Whitby Wood, 9th Floor,

11 York Road, London, SE1 7NX


12.30 – 5.30pm



An intensive half-day course aimed at those who are new to the disciplines of health and safety and risk management.


Health and safety is a key area, along with fire, programme and financial circumstances where professionals are increasingly required to exercise judgement through analysing risk. Concentrating primarily on Health and Safety, the course and supporting publication (see below) will provide participants with an essential foundation for understanding how the risk management can be addressed from a professional engineering standpoint.


Using a practical and interactive approach, the course topics include :


  • An introduction to the English legal system
  • Accident causation and prevention
  • Key features of the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974
  • Understanding the requirements of the Management Regulations 1999
  • CDM 2015 – aims and key functions
  • Developing Skills, Knowledge and Experience in managing risk


The course is led by Tony Putsman, CEng MICE an experienced civil engineer, and co-author of 'Practical guide to using CDM Regulations 2015 - Teamwork not Paperwork.'


A leading advocate of team-based risk management, he will provide delegates with a coherent framework for managing health and safety risk during the pre-construction phase of projects.
