Health and Safety

General Practice

Health and safety

The principal legislation that covers health and safety in the construction industry is the Construction, Design and Management Regulations 2007. This legislation is far reaching and places specific duties on clients, designers and contractors to ensure that construction hazards, both in the construction and in use are eliminated, where possible, and managed where this is not possible.

The CDM regulations applies to all projects, although there are further implications for projects lasting more than 30 days or 500 person days, which are called notifiable projects.

  • Client - the client has an important role to play as they define the overall budget and time considerations
  • Designers - the designer must eliminate and reduce hazards in the initial design
  • Contractors -  have to carry out the work safely and provide a safe place to work
  • Notifiable projects - involves the appointment of a CDM Coordinator (CDM-C) and a Principal Contractor, who provide pre-construction information, construction phase health and safety plan and a health and safety file.
