Design for Environmental Health and Safety (DFESH) is gaining momentum in industry. Companies are realizing that designing for people?s health and safety up front can dramatically reduce future expenses and keep their staff safe and healthy while at work. The cost of re-design after the initial installation can be more costly than the original design. In addition, implementing an ergonomic program during the design of an interior space can also help you to achieve LEED certification. This session will discuss the global standards which are currently available and give some ?real life? examples of design challenges and how to address them from a global perspective in the planning stages.
