CDM Regulations 2015
The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations (CDM) are the main set of regulations for managing the health, safety and welfare of construction projects.
On Monday 6 April 2015, the CDM Regulations 2015 replaced the 2007 Regulations.
1. All projects must have:
2. Project where more than one contractor is involved (domestic or non-domestic) must have 1 above plus:
3. If work is scheduled to:
All of 1 and 2 above plus
Main roles include:
Where there is more than one contractor there are additional roles:
On large projects the client is responsible for making sure the Principle designer and Principle contractor carry out their duties. The designer is responsible for health and safety during the planning stage including identifying, eliminating or minimising foreseeable health and safety risks.
You are more likely to have a dangerous or fatal accident while your construction work is carried out if you do not ensure that the CDM 2015 Regulations are followed. In addition, your finished structure may not be safe to use, safe to maintain and may not deliver you good value for money.
Serious breaches of health and safety legislation on a construction project could result in construction work having to be stopped by HSE or your local authority and additional work may be needed to rectify matters. In the most serious circumstances you may be prosecuted.
