Program Overview:

Safety in Design and Construction was developed using "Design for Safety" theories, which recommend that safety considerations be initiated early in the construction lifecycle, rather than at the construction phase of a project. This proactive approach results in a decrease in accidents and injuries.

This comprehensive Harvard program targets safety and pre-planning during every phase of a project. Beginning with the concept, through design, construction, and operation phases of a new facility, the program considers elimination of hazards to workers and mitigation of environmental compliance requirements. The program will cover accepted strategies and best practices related to every phase of construction.

Upon completion of this Harvard program, participants will be able to:

* Collaborate with other construction disciplines to identify environmental requirements and eliminate hazards to workers and occupants
* Create innovative approaches, including technology and resource management, to minimize risks associated with construction and facility operations
* Apply strategies and best practices during each phase of construction
* Participate in constructability analyses to identify risks and challenges and develop strategies to ensure worker safety
* Develop programs that will lead to implementation of these concepts in your organization
* Evaluate the safety impacts of decisions made during each phase of a project

Who Should Participate?

Any professional involved in conceptualizing, designing, reviewing, constructing, or operating a facility will directly benefit from this program. Applicable professions include, but are not limited to:
