11 May 2011 saw the launch of the new edition of the Manual “Designing for Safety in Construction”. Authored by Jack Kavanagh, with advice and support from a committee established by the RIAI, Engineers Ireland and the Association of Consulting Engineers in Ireland, the new publication is targeted at a professional designer or design consultant, employed to design or specify permanent works.

The Manual combines the current understanding of the legislative requirements, with interpretation and consideration of Health and Safety Authority (HSA) Guidelines and the briefing notes produced by the three professional bodies.

Cathie Shannon provides further details.
