Over the past 12 months, the EEA has been working with Marshall Clark, WEL Networks and Network Waitaki to pilot a new approach to Safety in Design (SiD) training.

The new SiD course is based on the EEA's Safety in Design Guide (2016) and is intended to give participants an understanding of the contribution of a variety of perspectives to SiD, and practice using a selection of risk-based tools and techniques in real-life scenarios.

Course Details

The course includes a total of three components, allowing EEA members to mix and match to their own organisational needs. The components are:

A choice of one of two online courses:

  • The full course - aimed at those who will lead SiD processes in their organisations. The course takes approximately 4 to 6 hours to complete.
  • The awareness course - aimed at those who are likely to be part of any SiD review process, but who will not be expected to lead the process. The course takes approximately 1 to 2 hours to complete.
  • A choice of one of two workshops:
  • The full course - a one-day onsite SiD workshop focusing on real-world scenarios.
  • The awareness course - a half-day workshop focusing on the SiD processes in practice as part of the awareness course.

Participate in an 'Organisational SiD Maturity Survey' aimed at better understanding SiD in an organisational context. Once complete the results (accompanied by one-on-one interviews) collated and presented in the form of an organisational SiD improvement project plan.


Pricing for the SiD courses differ depending on EEA membership status. *Prices shown are exclusive of GST.
