Safety during construction

Architects should not accept responsibility for site OHS. Confirm with the client which, if any, duties you will perform in respect of site OHS. Generally in administering the contract an architect should:

  • Seek evidence from the contractor that the contractor has fulfilled its OHS obligations both in law and under the contract
  • Instruct the contractor to do so as necessary
  • Advise the client accordingly
