Abstract This research report deals with the integration of safety aspects of future maintenance work into the design of buildings and structures. The nature and scope of subsequent work foreseen in buildings and structures was examined, together with the components of buildings and structures in terms of the work they will require and its related hazards. Maintenance constitutes the majority of the work that can be foreseen and can therefore be taken into account during the design of the building or structure. As a result of the research, a catalogue of solutions was elaborated for the safe design of subsequent maintenance work related to buildings and structures. These solutions consist of general design guidelines and special guidelines for the safe design of subsequent work related to facades, roofs, technical equipment, high rooms, as well as outdoor equipment of buildings and structures.
