Can you summarise what I should be doing as a designer?

The main designer duties under the Regulations are:

	to make sure you are competent for the job

	to check that clients are aware of their duties under the Regulations before you start work on the project

	when preparing the design, to avoid risks to those:
			carrying out construction work
			liable to be affected by the construction work
			cleaning any window or transparent or translucent wall, ceiling or roof in or on the structure
			maintaining permanent fixtures and fittings of the structure
			using the structure as a workplace

	when preparing the design, to eliminate hazards that may give rise to risks, and reduce risks from any remaining hazards

	to perform these duties so far as is reasonably practicable, taking account of other relevant design considerations

	to take account of the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992

	to provide relevant information with the design about aspects of the design of the structure or its construction or maintenance, as will adequately assist clients, other designers and contractors to comply with their duties under the Regulations
