Quinn Architects places great emphasis on Health & Safety at both the Design and Construction Stages of every project.
Both John Quinn (Practice Principal) and Cathal Quinn (Senior Project Architect) have considerable experience of both design and construction. John and Cathal have acted as Project Supervisor Design Stage (PSDS) under the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work (Construction) Regulations 2001 but the practice took the decision to sub-contract the increasingly specialist role of Project Supervisor Design Process (PSDP) which came into effect under the new Regulations of 2006.
We work in close partnership with the PSDP to identify all relevant Health & Safety issues at an early design stage so as to control and/or eliminate design risks.
As Designers, we will assess the project against the Particular Risks and relay our findings to the PSDP. As the design develops we will conduct Risk Assessments for inclusion in the Preliminary Health & Safety File. We will liaise with both the PSDP and Project Supervisor Construction Stage (PSCS) throughout the Construction Stage to ensure that Health & Safety issues are identified and responded to promptly and thoroughly. We will prepare the required information for inclusion in the Safety File prepared by the PSDP.
