CDM Assistance

The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 (CDM 2015) come into force in Great Britain on 6 April 2015. They set out what people involved in construction work need to do to protect themselves from harm and anyone the work affects. The HSE has produced guidance on the regulations, Managing health and safety in construction L153.

Key elements to securing construction health and safety:

  • Managing the risks by applying the general principles of prevention.
  • Appointing the right people and organisations at the right time.
  • Making sure everyone has the information, instruction, training and supervision they need.
  • Duty holders cooperating and communicating with each other.
  • Consulting workers and engaging with them to promote and develop effective measures.

Other health and safety regulations also apply to construction. For example, the Work at Height Regulations 2005 and the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 (see here for more information)
