Abstract: A Safety Risk Assessment is included in the 2014 Faculty Guidelines Institute (FGI) Guidelines for the Design and Construction of Hospitals and Outpatient Facilities, however, tools to support this requirement do not exist. This paper presents continued development of a Safety Risk Assessment (SRA) toolkit to be used proactively during the design of healthcare facility projects. Following content development, the tool was tested at three project sites and through hypothetical scenarios in an interactive testing process engaging expert panels. The testing revealed tactical considerations (content clarity, redundancy, etc.) and strategic aspects (themes related to use) for finalizing the tool. © 2015 The Authors. Published by Elsevier B.V.
