This course provides participants with a comprehensive understanding of the requirements of the CDM Regulations 2015 and how these should be implemented in practice.
The Regulations are put in context with other key health and safety legislation. The programme sets out clearly the roles and responsibilities of the principal duty holders and explores with the participants how these roles may vary on different types of project and procurement routes. The programme examines the content and appropriate level of information that should be included in the Pre-Construction Information and the Construction Phase Plan.
The trainer will discuss best practice in implementing CDM through the new 2015 Regulations and Guidance.
Key changes in the 2015 Regs
- Principal designer: The CDM co-ordinator role (under the 2007 CDM Regs) is replaced by that of the principal designer. This puts responsibility for the co-ordination of the pre-construction phase – crucial to the management of any successful construction project – where it properly belongs, ie, with an existing member of the design team.
- Client: The new Regs recognise the influence and importance of the client. Since they’re at the top of the supply chain they are best placed to set standards throughout a project.
- Competence: This is now split into skills, knowledge, training and experience, and, where relevant, organisational capability. This change is intended to provide clarity and to help the industry to both assess and demonstrate that construction project teams have the right attributes to deliver a healthy and safe project.
