Suitably qualified and experienced design and technology staff can apply to become a Registered Design and Technology Health and Safety Consultant (RDTHSC), enabling them to provide training and accreditation to the D&T Association standards, working to a Code of Practice.
All RDTHSCs are required to have public liability and professional indemnity insurance*
It is the responsibility of each RDTHSC to ensure they have appropriate cover in place and those employed by a Local Authority or educational establishment need to check that the insurance cover provided by their employer is adequate, particularly if they will be working outside their normal area of employment such as at another school. It is expected that all consultants attend the D&T Association Health and Safety Conference when held.
RDTHSC registration must be renewed annually.
The application form and notes of guidance are both available on the main website.
