CDM Services

The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 (CDM 2015) are a set of guidelines enforcing health and safety duties on all UK projects, throughout the design, maintenance and construction of buildings.

Why do you need CDM services?

The regulations aim to improve health and safety within the construction industry by helping to:

  • Plan any project sensibly so the risks involved are managed effectively, from start to finish
  • Ensuring the right people are hired for the right job, at the right time
  • Coordinate any projects with the relevant people
  • Document the right information about the risks and how they are being managed
  • Communicate the information effectively to those who need to know
  • Consult and engage with workers about the risks and how they are being managed

The regulations cover the duties of clients for all construction projects, including the health and safety duties and roles of other duty holders, comprising of designers, principal designers, principal contractors and contractors.

Failure to comply with the duties outlined within The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 can result in a criminal prosecution.
