Safety Specialist Committee
Design for Safety (CDM Concept & Incident Prevention)
Design Management (CDM) regulations were
introduced in the United Kingdom on 31st March 1995 in compliance
with European Directives. The objectives of this regulation are to improve
construction safety by enhancing co-ordination and communication among project
parties through out all stages of the construction project. In
Singapore, the Design for Safety Regulations has been enforced from 1 Aug 2016
and requires developers, designers and contractors to work together to address
the risk at source and plan for the construction work.
1995, the Hong Kong Government had published a Consultation Paper (HK Govt.
1995) on the review of industry safety in Hong Kong, and one of the item of
consultation was on implementation of Construction (Design and Management)
(CDM) regulations in Hong Kong.
Development Bureau (DEVB) had taken the lead to implement the model under UK's
(Design and Management) Regulations (CDM Regulations) in public works in 2006.
The result of the survey indicates that many stakeholders in the industry
struggled with the CDM Guidance Notes' systematic approach and concepts.
In fact, the review of Occupational Safety and Health Statistics
2016, the construction industry has always had high accident rates among other
industries. Analyzed by type, "falling from height" was the largest
category of fatal construction accidents, claiming the lives of 11 persons or
30% of total figure of death in construction during 2005 - 2016. It was
followed by "electric shock" (5%), struck by "vehicles"
(5%), "moving objects" (5%) and "falling objects (5%).
AIM OF THE COURSE
Review the concept of CDM for health and safety
considerations to be treated as effectively, efficiently, seamlessly and
naturally integrating practices the new model of construction safety management
referred to as "Design for Safety".
The CDM Guidance Notes' systematic approach and concepts
that has been introduced the main objectives of which are to:
l Promote early involvement,
effective cooperation and communication of all stakeholders through the timely
provision of relevant and necessary information.
l Improve clarity on the
demarcation of the roles and responsibilities of the parties responsible for
coordinating and providing relevant project data on risks at all stages of a
l Identifying the outputs of
the "Design for Safety" application process and the specific risk
reduction measures. Hazard identification and mitigation should be initiated at
the early design stages to eliminate or minimize the risks of injury and be continued
through the subsequent stages of project development, implementation,
maintenance and demolition for better safety management in the whole project
l Sharing experience the safety of a
construction project and appurtenant structures applies to all stages in the
life cycle commencing with the inception stage; through the planning and design
stages; followed by the construction and commissioning and ongoing operation
and maintenance stages; and in certain cases, decommissioning.
