FutureNet Event 4 | Law & Designer

Legal & Practical Obligations of Designers Or How to stay out of a legal mess!

Wednesday 16 August 2017


In recent years, there have been a number of workplace incidents involving the failure of structures which have led to near misses, serious injuries and worse.  When legal proceedings have followed, designers have often found themselves caught up in complicated safety prosecutions, facing significant penalties in relation to alleged breaches of their obligations under WHS legislation.


So, how familiar are you with your obligations?


Join your fellow young professionals for a night of networking, drinks and canapés and learn about the duties owed by designers. Experienced professionals from both legal and engineering backgrounds will present topical case studies to learn from designers’ successes as well as their epic mistakes.


Presenters include:

·         Sam McGrath, Partner, Cowell Clarke Commercial Lawyers

·         Cassie Burfoot, Associate, Cowell Clarke Commercial Lawyers

·         Alex Sawers, Senior Project Manager, AECOM
