Hence there are similarities between project management and design risk management, with both aligned to the concept of the integrated team sharing common goals and seeking to continually improve. The design risk management process in matters of health and safety must also embrace the general principles of prevention to the satisfaction of the term, ‘as far as is reasonably practicable’. Consider the parallels shown below. Project management Design risk management Key components: CDM compliance: Clear objectives Organisational and individual relationships (Latham and Egan principles) Communication Competence Co-ordination and effective interfacing Co-operation and collaborative working Controls Section 3 (HASW Act 1974) Integrated and holistic team Control methodology Cultural alignment Regulations 11(6) and 18(2) Regulation 4 Regulation 5 Regulation 6 Regulations 7, 11(1) and 18(1) Design risk management Paragraph 3 (Approved Code of Practice) and Section 1 of HSAW 1974 Project planning and organisation together with risk and contingency management are integrated subsets of both project management and design risk management, and are key elements in delivering success on all projects.

Design co-ordination is also critical to the iterative nature of the design process. Both the above perspectives have implications for the duty holder on both the non-notifiable and the notifiable project. Regulation 5 (co-operation) and Regulation 6 (co-ordination) have implications throughout, on the management arrangements of all duty holders and in particular those of the client, by virtue of duties in respect of Regulation 9 (Clients’ duties). 1, pages 81 and 82) 7. General principles of prevention (1) Every person on whom a duty is placed by these Regulations in relation to the design, planning and preparation of a project shall take account of the general principles of prevention in the performance of those duties during all the stages of the project.

This issue itself touches on the competence of the team. It is essential that the design risk management process is demonstrable without being enslaved to paperwork systems that add very little to the effectiveness of communication. This will always be a challenge, but the designer is entitled to design on the assumption that work is to be undertaken by a competent contractor. Information from the design process into pre-construction information and the health and safety file does not therefore need to focus on issues that would normally be expected to be dealt with by the contractor and/or facility management team.
