The Health and Safety Panel promotes the use of the risk management best practices to ICE members, industry and wider society.
The panel of experts is made up of ICE members who come from a range of civil engineering backgrounds. The panel works closely with the Health and Safety Register to develop guidance and more effective practices.
The Health and Safety panel is made up of a variety of industry experts. Find out more about our panel chair and details of the panel's members.
Margaret is the Senior Health and Safety Advisor for Transport for London. She's worked on numerous major projects, including the Stratford Station upgrade and is the currently Health and Safety Manager on the proposed TfL Silvertown Tunnel Project.
The Panel has a long history in trying to improve the understanding of the obligation on designers to 'eliminate or mitigate risk'.
The panel is pushing the health agenda through its Design for Health (DfH) initiative. The focus on early design decisions being key to better onsite construction safety. In this vein it has now produced the first three of what is hoped to be a series of designer guidance notes to guide designers towards a compliant solution. More details can be found on the Designing for health page.
The requirements on aspiring members with regard to training and knowledge acquisition are well documented. However thereafter, apart from the general requirement for CPD, the requisite knowledge in occupational safety and health risk management is not so well laid out. Members are encouraged to read, and adopt, the 'Life-Long Learning' guide produced by IIG which outlines recommended knowledge acquisition over a notional career life-span.
The panel is currently working on the ICE Health Summit planned for 22 January 2018. This is part of the ICE 200 series of events celebrating 200 years of civil engineering achievements.
