Explore the fundamental SiD steps to integrate into the engineering design lifecycle and how to scale the work required based on the associated scope, complexity and risk.

Engineering and design work always has an identifiable lifecycle, from the point at which someone recognises that design work is required, until the end of the designed asset's life.

An engineering design lifecycle applies whether the design is new work or modifications to an existing design, regardless of the scale. This lifecycle must also include activities to manage the safety of the asset.

This webinar explores the fundamental Safety in Design (SiD) steps that should be integrated into the engineering design lifecycle including effective planning, hazard identification, and verification and validation at the appropriate stages. An SiD expert will present an approach to scaling the work required for each step, according to the scope, scale, complexity and risk associated with the design.

You'll gain an appreciation of a typical engineering lifecycle, the steps of safety in design that should occur, and how they integrate with the activities of engineering and design.

The engineering lifecycle presented will be generic for training purposes and will not necessarily be the same as your organisation’s lifecycle. The intent is that you will gain an appreciation of general lifecycle phases, the steps of Safety in Design and how the two integrate.
