Work, Health and Safety (WHS) legislation requires engineers and designers to consider the hazards presented throughout the entire life of an asset to ensure ‘so far as is reasonably practicable’ that it is safe to build, install, test, commission, operate, maintain and demolish.
Engineers and designers have to determine what is Reasonably Practicable many times in their career, and in general it is not taught at university.
This session focuses on the process of determining whether a hazard control is reasonably practicable, in the context of the legal definition, and how to apply it in practice.
This webinar was recorded and is available to watch through Engineers Australia’s online streaming platform, EA On Demand.
