If you are about to alter or extend a building or structure, thinking of putting up a new one or demolishing an existing one, then the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007 place a number of specific duties on you.
The CDM regulations separates construction projects into two types – dependent on how long they take to build and how many people are involved.
For projects which are notifiable to the HSE you are required to appoint an adviser called a “CDM Co-ordinator” before significant detailed design work starts so that they can advise and assist you with all of your duties.
The aim of the CDM Regulations [I1] is to make Health & Safety an essential and integral part of the planning and management of projects and to make sure that everyone works together to reduce the risk to the Health & Safety of those who work on the structure, who may be affected by these works, or who will use it as a place or work once it’s completed
We can assist in undertaking any CDM or Construction related service from providing general advice or consulting on specific health and safety related issues. We would be pleased to discuss your requirements and draw up a proposal for your consideration.
Furthermore given our Consultant’s engineering construction background and experience we have successfully undertaken training courses on the Construction Design and Management (CDM) Regulations over the past six years and also acted as CDM co-ordinators.
