Under the Health and Safety at Work Act, designers based in New Zealand or designing for the New Zealand market has a set of duties to design for the health and safety of people who will be affected by their design. This makes “health and safety by design” is a critical part of engineering design practice and requires that H&S considerations inform design decisions. Hosted by The Special Interest Group for Immigrant Engineers.

During this webinar, the designer’s duties will be summarised and explained, and the general principles of health and safety by design will be discussed. Alignment of these duties with engineer’s ethical responsibilities will be highlighted, and some comparisons made between common design practice and the theoretical obligations imposed by law.”

Joe Bain will present the seminar (CPEng), the NZ Society for Safety Engineering Chair. Joe’s day to day engineering practice centres on safety-critical engineering activities. He has previously been in the CPD courses on HSWA and H&S by Design via Engineering New Zealand.
