What is the Construction Design and Management Regulations (CDM)?
The Construction Design and Management Regulations (CDM) came into force the 6th April 2015, replacing the CDM Regulations issued in 2007.
Its purpose is to ensure that health and safety are considered properly and routinely in the planning and management of construction projects and to ensure that the various duties of the parties involved are clear.
In the CDM Regulations, ‘client’ is defined in a broad enough way to include both domestic and commercial clients.
What are the objectives?
A key goal of the CDM Regulations is to reduce the risk of harm to people involved in the planning, construction, use, maintenance, and demolition of structures.
The CDM Regulations provide concrete guidelines to improve health and safety in construction, including:
- Planning the work so the risks involved are managed throughout
- Hiring the right people for the right job at the right time
- Working with others in cooperation and coordination
- Being aware of the risks and how they are being managed
- Consulting workers about risk management and how risks are managed
