Dieter Bentley-Gockmann pens the RIBA’s new Health and Safety Guide

Riba Handbook Story Web Image

Working in partnership with the RIBA, EPR director Dieter Bentley-Gockmann has penned the latest handbook for embedding health and safety in design.

The new Health and Safety Guide, which is available to pre-order here, is a companion guide that has been prepared to support members in maintaining their professional competency in health and safety. It is one of the mandatory competencies set out in The Way Ahead — the RIBA’s introduction to a new education and professional development framework. In addition to being a useful study resource for architectural students and a reference manual for ‘best practice’ among professionals, the handbook has been developed in tandem with the RIBA’s health and safety competency test. This will go live in late 2020 and will become compulsory from 2022 for 2023 membership renewals.

‘For competent, practicing architects, this guide will be a reminder of what you already know. It is a re-affirmation that safe practice and design should be at the heart of what we do.’

Dieter Bentley-Gockmann, Director, EPR Architects

The handbook’s illustrations are by EPR architect Natalie Gall.
