HSE has always been at the heart of our business. Our passion for safety and our courage to care for one another and the environment inspires mutual respect. As a solutions focused business we go beyond simply following HSE legislation, procedures and processes, applying the fundamentals of BeyondZero® to our engineering and design outputs to raise the bar of health, safety and sustainability.

de5ign is our framework for HSE in Design which takes us beyond base legislative requirements and provides a consistent approach to safety in design across our global business. BeyondZero® by definition, de5ign aims to go beyond the accepted to create high value, safer and healthier solutions for a more connected sustainable world.

The framework is scaleable in application from small streetscape design to advanced research and development and technology industry facilities providing support to our  designers through a developing HSE in Design toolset and integrated HSE in Design professionals to support our designers to maximise HSE benefits throughout the whole lifecycle of the project.

Using de5ign, we will provide solutions that improve the health and wellbeing of workers and increase the productivity of our design teams, while adding value to our clients through reduced costs over the lifecycle of a project.

de5ign in action: A case study

In the U.K., we've been working with Highways England on the M6 Junctions 16-19 Smart Motorway project. 

Find out how the team challenged the norm and found an alternative method that not only saved money for the client, but also had additional benefits like reducing the need to work near overhead power cables and eliminating confined space entry and lifting operations.

TrackRecord Safety is the most comprehensive approach to CDM (design) hazard management that I've ever seen. It's really impressive to see. I'm very glad that we are using it on the project.
