This project, funded by the HSE through consultant Greenstreet Berman, has delivered a number of design exemplars for improving the health and safety of construction workers.

The case studies cover pre-glazed PC cladding panels, piling guide walls, pre-cast concrete ground beams, vertical lifting facilities for steel columns, gutter handrail supports for portal frames, unitised curtain wall and industrial roof systems.

The report has been published by the HSE as Report RR 148. It is available as a free download at: http://www.hse.gov.uk/research/rrpdf/rr148.pdf.
