Information:

Safe design is based on the principle that everyone has a right to be protected from unnecessary risk of injury or harm. It is concerned with eliminating occupational safety and health hazards at the design stage or controlling risks, as early as possible, in the planning and design of buildings, structures, products, processes or systems.

As well as the risk of loss of life, injury or income, poor design can result in a range of other economic costs, such as low productivity, higher maintenance, reduced asset life, and higher employment and workers’ compensation expenses. It is more costly to retrofit or modify existing products to achieve safety than it is to “design out” hazards early in the process.
