Proposals for CDM regulations launched
Proposals to revise the Construction (Design & Management) Regulations 2007 (CDM Regulations) are being launched today.
The launch will be followed by a 10-week consultation period when the construction industry can respond to the proposals.
Richard Habgood, president of the Association for Project Safety, said: “we have waited a long time for these proposals to be issued. We hope that the new CDM regulations will being a marked improvement in construction health and safety risk management performance by all dutyholders across the board but in particular to the smaller and medium-sized projects.”
The proposals for the CDM regulations are expected to bring about the creation of a new dutyholder — the principal designer — who will be responsible for the coordination of health and safety throughout the design phase. The new role would substantially replace that of the CDM co-ordinator.
In addition, many domestic projects will now come under the full effect of the CDM regulations in order to better comply with the European Directive.
