About us

Who we are and what we do

The Association for Project Safety [APS] is a professional membership body dedicated to eliminating deaths, reducing injury and tackling ill-health associated with construction. We aim to improve, and promote excellence in, professional practice in design and construction health and safety risk management, helping everyone manage risk and implement building regulations effectively and proportionately.

We contribute to the national debate on building and infrastructure safety, regulation and legislation, providing training, education and support and member networking opportunities. We work closely with other bodies and partners to improve – through good design and throughout the life-cycle of projects and buildings – health and safety for everyone involved in construction and use.

We aim to improve and promote the professional practice of design and construction health and safety risk management by:

  • Setting standards;
  • Raising performance;
  • Providing guidance;
  • Educating and training; and
  • Working in partnership with others

with the aim of ensuring construction workers and others return home safely.
