RR173 - The development of a knowledge based system to deliver health and safety information to designers in the construction industry

The Health and Safety Executive is committed to reducing the number of accidents which occur within the construction industry. There is a belief that the poor health and safety record can be improved by encouraging designers to give more consideration to health and safety issues during the design stage.

This project's aim was to prototype a method of providing designers with easy access to relevant health and safety information, by establishing a means of structuring HSE's information as a Knowledge Based System (KBS) and delivering it to designers.
