Construction (Design & Management) Regulations 2007

We have extensive CDM 2007 experience and frequently act as Principal Contractor or Sub Contractor on “Notifiable” projects within the regulations. We believe a clear understanding of the roles and responsibilities of the participants on notifiable projects plus a comprehensive and specific “Construction Phase – Health and Safety Site Plan” on ALL our major works projects is key to our construction success.

Construction Phase – Health & Safety Site Plans

We always ensure the Health and Safety Site Plan is approved before site works start and that it includes the project safety statement and arrangements, management and monitoring, risk management, emergency arrangements, site set-up and welfare, site specific risks, general Health and Safety items and well-being, asbestos report, RAMS, COSHH, SWAMP etc.

Our Role as Principal Contractor on a “Notifiable” Project:

  • Initially prepare and implement the H&S site plan before construction begins
  • Make Sub Contractors aware of the plan and design and other changes
  • Ensure suitable welfare facilities are provided and maintained
  • Ensure all workers are competent, site inducted and aware of the site plan and designs
  • Liaise with the CDM co-ordinator regarding ongoing design and safety issues
  • Ensure site security and display of safety notices and F10 Form

Our Role as Sub Contractor on a “Notifiable” Project:

  • Ensure the client has appointed a CDM Co-ordinator and notified the HSE
  • Cooperate with Principal Contractor in planning and managing the works
  • Advise the Principal Contractor of any contractors we engage on the works
  • Provide any information needed for the Health & Safety file
  • Make the Principal Contractor aware of status and problems with the site plan
  • Record promptly reportable accidents, diseases and dangerous occurrences
