Details of safety observation:
Our reports are signed off for use by a physical signature from the author and reviewer. Many of our documents end up in the public domain, or with clients where we have no control over how they store and use the documents. There is therefore potential for people's signatures to get into the public domain where they could be picked up and used for fraudulent activities. For example every document submitted with a planning application would be on application portals hosted by the local authority, and any documents submitted to central/local government or public organisations are also available to the public on request. The use of signatures is not something I see from our competitors any more, they either do not contain approval pages within the report or have a typed confirmation of sign off - similar to the Atkins report attached.
