Health and Safety by Design

When it comes to providing quality healthcare, the planning, design, and construction of healthcare facilities must be considered. Poor design can contribute to infection transmission and negative health outcomes. With Canada’s aging population growing in number and healthcare continuing to represent the largest share of federal capital spending, standards are needed to effectively mitigate these risks and support effective delivery of healthcare services. CSA Z8000-18 offers a comprehensive, nationally-recognized baseline for the planning, design, and construction of hospitals and other healthcare facilities based on leading research linking good facility design to better patient outcomes.
