- Reduce risk (technical, quality, health, and safety) to the point of elimination or as low as is reasonably practicable. This includes risk identification, assessment, mitigation, communication, and record keeping.

- As a key member of Designer and Principal Designer teams, promote the safety-in-design ethos and discharge these CDM duties on behalf of SSE.
