Understanding of CDM Regulations Training


Introduction: The impact of the CDM Regulations is significant and far reaching. From 6 April 2015, every construction project has to comply with the CDM 2015 Regulations including domestic clients and smaller projects (previously exempt or below the notification threshold of the CDM 2007 Regulations). There are structural changes in the duty holders and application of the Regulations. The legal implications from the Regulations not only affect all involved in Construction and related industries but also entertainment, leisure, facilities management and manufacturing sectors. The CDM 2015 Regulations have forced the designers, principal contractors and contractors to take additional legal responsibilities. This course is intended for individuals who may require a general understanding and application of the Regulations and how legal responsibilities and liabilities under the Regulations can be fulfilled effectively.
