Safer Design was founded to assist Designers, Project Managers, Contractors and Clients in ‘designing out’ health and safety risks during design development
Safer Design believes that along with quality, programme and cost; safety is determined during the design stage
We believe that a large number of construction and end use safety risks can be designed out during design developement with proactive focused consideration.
How can we approach this? - Application of STAGE Reviews
The STAGE review promoted by Safer Design is considered a useful process in managing risk; that improves safety, constructability and maintainability in a coordinated manner with all stakeholders.
The STAGE review process was designed during research at the University of the West of England and developed in close consultation with leading academics and construction professionals from Europe, Australia, UAE and the United States.
This website has been developed to promote STAGE reviews and to act as an industry resource specifically for the design phase health and safety management process.

WHAT is STAGE?
STAGE is a Safety Targeted Assessment via Gateway Evaluation.
STAGE presents pre planned windows when health and safety on a project is mounted for examination. The process acknowledges that design is always in a transitional state and establishes focused reviews of relevent health and safety considerations throughout design development.
