CDM 2015 is here

The new CDM Regulations finally came into force on 6 April 2015 with a transition period of six months for projects already underway and with that have come extensive new duties for Clients, Designers, Project Managers, (who take on the role of Principal Designer), and Contractors. And this will now include all domestic projects.

But don't worry, we can help.

Key to these changes is the transfer of duties currently carried out by the CDM C to Principal Designers, Clients and Contractors. The regulations are similar to the previous 2007 CDM Regs in that any member of the team can carry out the role of CDM PD but they must be competent in H&S and be a designer as defined by the Regulations.

The Client also has new duties to notify projects, set out the health and safety objectives and brief for the project, monitor performance, ensure a construction phase plan is in place and take a much greater part in the overall health and safety management of the project than was previously expected.

Our advice to minimise exposure to risk for the Client and design team simply is appoint your current CDM C as your CDM PD, so long as they have design experience, to fulfill all the H&S design responsibilities imbedded within the team - just as they do now.

CDM Contract Services have provided support, advice and consultancy services to Client, Designers, Project Managers, Contractors and other construction professionals since 1995 and are ideally placed as independent experts in construction health and safety to ensure smooth cost effective compliance with the new regulations and add value through intelligent thinking.

On recent projects acting as CDM C we have saved our Clients substantial sums through sensible advice on rooflight, mansafe and ladder provision. We provide peace of mind for the client by minimising risk exposure by principal contractors and ensuring smooth PC with prompt provision of health and safety files and building manuals
