This presentation provides the overview, findings, and recommendations from numerous Safety in Design activities in the context of standalone large-scale solar or BESS and the integrated Solar-BESS. The presentation highlights the most common hazards identified during the whole life-cycle phase of the solar and BESS and the effect of this integrated system on the environment. Finally, some recommendations that can be implemented during the design phase of these systems to make it safe so far as is reasonably practicable for human, asset, and environmental interfaces.
