As an interior designer one can not understate the importance of health and safety. The difficulty however lies in the fact that the safety issues he or she should be concerned about stretch over various fields ranging from, safety in the home/space/office/environment where people need to work or live, building safe constructions, to providing a safe working environment for the people who are carrying out the building work.
Many of those safety issues are bound by extensive laws and regulations and it is obvious that covering the whole spectrum of health and safety which an interior designer should be concerned about is beyond the scope of this article. Nevertheless would it be useful to write down a summary, a checklist if you like, of the various health and safety aspects governing our business and provide some leads where to start looking for help, answers and regulations.
