The Construction (Design and Management) (CDM) 2015 regulation sets out what people involved in construction work need to do to protect themselves from harm; aiming to improve health and safety within the industry.
On the 6th April, CDM 2015 Regulations came into effect, with several important changes.
The new regulation includes all construction work, even for domestic client status. This is likely to have negligible impact to mainstream construction projects, however the inclusion of domestic clients represents the change in health and safety legislation.
There are many advantages, predominantly recognising that as the client you hold the power to influence and control those you engage and appoint on a project. Therefore, the ultimate responsibility for the achievement of a safe project is in your hands as much as theirs.
