ESC Lab hosts Solar PtD Seminar – May 12, 2017

Almost 50% of construction accidents are linked to decisions made during the design phase. Recognizing this, how can solar designers proactively address workers’ safety concerns?

Through several solar project case studies and interviews, UW & OSU researchers have developed a Protocol and solar design guide. Intended for solar energy systems designers, this Protocol supports those interested in applying Prevention through Design (PtD) practices to improve solar safety for small residential buildings.

The ESC Lab will host a 3-hour seminar on May 12, 2017 to share research on Prevention through Design (PtD) and discuss this new Protocol. Industry feedback is sought to continue improvement of this Protocol as we prepare to publish it for broad industry use.
