Design projects for worker safety and health

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. Designing for safety explicitly considers reducing occupational safety risks to construction workers in the design process and incorporates a projects’ inherent risks to workers into design decisions. This proactive approach results in a decrease in accidents and injuries.

Explore construction safety best practices

This comprehensive Harvard program targets safety and pre-planning during every phase of a construction 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.

Safety in Design gives participants the unique opportunity to work with many of the stakeholders involved in construction and design.

By taking a multi-stakeholder approach to construction safety, this program provides participants with tools needed to minimize workers’ risk within their organization.
