Brad Luff – Fail to Plan, Plan to Fail

During a 30-year career in safety Brad has worked on several high-profile projects including the construction of Wembley New Stadium and being responsible for the safety at the Royal Artillery Barracks for London 2012 Olympic/Paralympic shooting events. The role was repeated 2 years later at The Commonwealth Games, again for the shooting events. As a qualified instructor running various safety courses, he has often noted that there is often a lack of attendees from both senior management and planning/tendering sectors, with training focusing on ‘sharp end’ personnel who carry out the work rather than those who plan the work. His key message is that issues are easier to fix at the ‘planning’ stage than the ‘doing’ stage.

Brad’s presentation titled “Fail to Plan, Plan to Fail” will focus on the failure to consider all foreseeable risks during the planning/tendering stage of refurbishment and demolition projects so that planning how to deal with those risks fails. This leads to dealing with the situation, when it arises in a reactive, not proactive way. Brad will also discuss how people carrying out the planning process are often untrained in terms of those risks, especially asbestos.
