CDM Services - Principal Designer, Client CDM Advisor, Principal Contractor Advisor and CDM 2015 Training

Impact of CDM (Construction Design and Management) Regulations is significant on any construction project.

From April 2015, all construction projects are required to comply with the CDM Regulations including domestic clients and smaller projects. Previous CDM Co-ordinator role has been removed and new Principal Designer role introduced.

CDM Regulations aim to improve health and safety on construction projects by:

  • Identification and management of health and safety risks from start to finish
  • Production of project health and safety risks information
  • Better planning for the project
  • Involvement of right professionals
  • Better co-ordination and co-operation on project
  • Identification and management of health and safety issues in post completion (repair, maintenance and cleaning) phase
