Prevention through Design [E40]

This session will focus on an important emerging topic within the construction industry: Prevention through Design (PtD), also known as Design for Construction Safety. From 2000 to 2002 in Oregon, Washington, and California 22% of 226 injuries that occurred were linked partly to design and 42% of 224 fatalities in U.S. between 1990 and 2003 were linked to design. Attendees will learn what PtD is, why it is considered to be socially sustainable, and how it is both the smart thing to do in terms of cost, time and quality. The session will include tips associated with organizational culture, processes and project partners that will help you implement PtD on your projects to reduce injuries and position steel as a socially sustainable material.
