It is “preventive safety management” that aims to eliminate or reduce risk factors across a building’s full life cycle by integrating methods of risk analysis and risk assessment in the early stage of building design.
SAMOO Architects & Engineers continues to engage in Design for Safety (DfS) activities with all design staff, design experts in different fields, and contractors. We aim to secure expertise in Design for Safety, internalize competitiveness and make it routinized.
Establish a system based on the experience accumulated from the projects executed
Routinize Design for Safety through participation and encouragement
Constantly exercise Design for Safety and promote experts
DfS database, which is applied to the entire stages of the design process, is comprised of the library and checklist. These are prepared based on risk factors and on-site accident cases from the projects executed, as well as the safety and health management system through ISO 45001 certification in the design field, such as the Design for Safety training platform and in-house expert committee.
SAMOO Architects & Engineers highlights the need for preventive design to practice safety design. When it comes to safety-conscious design, it is critical to not only eliminate and reduce risk factors in the design stages but also thoroughly evaluate the reasons for accidents and poor construction, in order to establish measures to prevent a recurrence. In this case, once the DfS database is made available to relevant construction engineers, more effective preventive design can be implemented through voluntary safety management training.
By sharing the guidelines and database of the Design for Safety, which SAMOO and Samsung C&T Corporate prepared by conducting long-term joint research with designers, construction companies, and other relevant specialized companies, we strive to exercise social responsibility as a leading ESG company and establish a culture emphasizing safety awareness in the domestic construction industry.
