1.1 OHS processes and procedures for a given work area are identified, obtained and understood.

1.2 Established techniques for project planning are reviewed are adopted in accordance with organisation policies.

1.3 The scope of the project is evaluated and project parameters established using a formal evaluation/survey processes.

1.4 Criteria from other related works impacting on the project are determined from specification of other work, site visits and/or discussion with appropriate person(s).

1.5 Project budget is established by setting realistic expectations of deliverables and in consideration of tangible quality differences that result in the deliver the best value.


2 Develop design briefs.

Performance Criteria:

2.1 Design brief is developed to include scenarios/requirements established in consultation with appropriate person(s), and regulatory requirements
2.2 Design brief is developed in collaboration with all relevant design professionals and contractors involved in the project
2.3 Competent persons required for the project are identified and their roles specified in the design brief
2.4 Project design brief is reviewed against all inputs and adjusted to rectify any anomalies
2.5 Project design brief proposal is documented in accordance with organisation policies and procedures


3 Obtain approval for design briefs.

Performance Criteria:

3.1 Project design brief is presented and discussed with person(s) of higher authority
