Adding Safety to Green: PTD Credit Presents Great Opportunity

PTDU.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) recently approved a prevention through design (PTD) pilot credit that aims to support OSH outcomes across the building life cycle. “This is a long-awaited and important step for PTD implementation and for the recognition of the importance that workplace safety and health has in the sustainability movement," says Michael Behm, Ph.D., CSP, an associate professor at East Carolina University.
The pilot credit grew out of a NIOSH partnership with USGBC to explore the connection between OSH and sustainable building practices. ASSE has also taken a leadership role in this area, including its founding role in the Center for Safety and Health Sustainability. The credit includes two OSH reviews: 1) a safe design review aimed at building operations and maintenance; and 2) safety constructability review.
This development represents a shift in thinking, Behm explains. "The OSH profession is expert at identifying hazards, but now must become adept at anticipating potential hazards and risks. PTD presents a great opportunity to realize the efficacy of the hierarchy of controls and the ability to utilize the higher order controls of avoid, eliminate, substitute and engineering."
