Design & safety of construction sites

In the field of infrastructure design and construction, the increasingly complex aspects related to plant design and fire prevention are of particular importance, governed by specific regulations. For example, Presidential Decree 151/2011, relating to the simplification of fire prevention procedures, identifies the activities subject to fire prevention checks by the Fire Brigade and, at the same time, regulates procedures for the relative checks on fire safety conditions which must be complied with.

Moreover, the fundamental element of the construction sector is undoubtedly the safety of temporary or mobile construction sites and the health and safety of workers.

NIER is engaged in comprehensive consultancy for plant design, fire prevention and management of all aspects related to the health and safety of workers on construction sites.
