The Health and Safety Authority says architects and designers can often be responsible for workplace accidents. A study published today reveals that a high proportion of design engineers has a poor understanding of their obligations under Health and Safety law. The Authority says lives have been lost as a result of poor design in the workplace. Senior Health and Safety inspector Jim Heffernan says its up to designers to know their obligations.
