Through our team of certified, experienced practitioners, TFT provide Principal Designer, Designer and CDM Client Adviser services across the UK property industry. Whether providing strategic or project-specific consultancy, we aim to remove any confusion over the various duty holder’s obligations, ensuring clients, designers and contractors get the most appropriate and timely advice to enable them to meet their duties regarding health and safety.
Health and safety. It’s a familiar phrase to us all in construction. For most clients, designers and contractors, safety has become second nature, all able to readily identify safety hazards, assess the risks and eliminate, reduce and control them, passing this information on to those that need it.
Health is a different matter. Statistically, the effects and cost of work-related ill-health far outweigh those of injuries and deaths, but less regard is paid to considering and designing out health hazards, with too much reliance still placed on personal protection rather than collective, preventative measures, designed in. Our training and rigorous design risk management ensures we identify and deal with the hazards, risks and opportunities for safe and healthy design at all stages of our involvement, for the benefit of everyone who may interact with the building through its life cycle.
