Overview of Health by Design

Exposure to health and wellbeing hazards affect your employees, organisational productivity and the business bottom line. Our Health by Design web pages will help you design out those hazards. Whether you are a client or designer developing new services, infrastructure or products, these pages will help you understand your role in developing the culture or systems that will prevent, manage, or mitigate exposure to those hazards.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) recognises that proportionately the risk from health hazards today to UK employees today can be three times the size of safety risk. What was seen as acceptable design practice in recent years needs new thinking; to be built upon with a fresh drive for techniques and knowledge that can reduce the current high levels of health risk.
