Health and safety strategy

The RIBA Plan of Work 2013 defined the Health and Safety Strategy as:

‘The strategy covering all aspects of health and safety on the project, outlining legislative requirements as well as other project initiatives, including the Maintenance and Operational Strategy.’

The RIBA Plan of Work published by the RIBA in 2020 suggests that:

'The Health and Safety Strategy needs to be considered early on in the project because it is key to securing the safe construction, occupation, maintenance and future re-use or demolition of the project. The client’s role is fundamental to this, to establish and maintain a health and safety-conscious approach to delivery of the project from the outset. The Health and Safety Strategy should set clear health and safety objectives.'
