Construction Phase Plans

A Construction Phase Plan (previously known as Construction Phase Health and Safety Plan) is a legal document required to be prepared by the Principal Contractor, or in the case of projects with only one contractor, the contractor, on all construction projects under the Construction Design and Management (CDM) Regulations 2015 (Regulation 12(1)).

It is also a legal duty under the CDM Regulations on both the Client (Regulation 4(5)(a)) and on the Principal Contractor (Regulations 12(1)) that the construction phase plan is drawn up before the construction phase begins.

The level of details is laid down in the CDM Regulations (Appendix 3). The Plan must not be generic, should be prepared considering the issues identified in the Pre-construction Information (PCI) and should reflect the specific site information.

At SafeScope we assist Principal Contractors in the preparation of Construction Phase Plans as required on a one off or regular basis.
