PtD - Structural Steel Design - Instructor's Manual

A strategic goal of the Prevention through Design (PtD) Plan for the National Initiative is for designers, engineers, machinery and equipment manufacturers, health and safety (H&S) professionals, business leaders, and workers to understand the PtD concept. Further, they are to apply these skills and this knowledge to the design and redesign of new and existing facilities, processes, equipment, tools, and organization of work. In accordance with the PtD Plan, this module has been developed for use by educators to disseminate the PtD concept and practice within the undergraduate engineering curricula.

The module outlines the motivations for PtD, encourages inclusion of worker health and safety considerations early in the design process, and identifies hazards associated with the construction of structural steel elements.  Topics include the structural design, detailing, fabrication and erection processes. Examples are provided to enable structural engineers and detailers to incorporate PtD into their steel designs.
