      Proactive management of health and safety risk often minimises ill-health, injuries and fatalities on projects. Hence, in some jurisdictions like the UK, statutory duties are placed on project Clients to make suitable arrangements for projects to be carried out without risk to health and safety. This study surveys Clients and practitioners in the UK construction industry in focus group workshops to establish seven dominant practices being employed by Clients in response to this obligation under the health and safety Regulations.
