Safer by Design

A framework to reduce serious accidental injury in new build homes

Wednesday, March 17, 2020

Responsible for more than 6,000 accidental deaths each year, our homes are statistically the most dangerous place to be. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Low-cost, evidence-based changes to house design can have massive implications for the safety, health and wellbeing of residents.

Join the growing club of elite designers, working hard to go beyond current building regulations, to ensure that the next generation of new-build homes are safer by design.



Hear why the framework is needed, and how it works in practice, from those who’ve already adopted it.
