The Construction (Design & Management) Regulations changed in 2015. Anything that involves building or altering a structure now falls under CDM. One of the main requirements under CDM 2015 is the need for all Clients including domestic ones to appoint a Principal Designer (normally the architect) to make sure suitable Health & Safety procedures are in place. This is where we come in. Formerly Registered CDM-Coordinators (RMaPS) we now act as CDM-Advisors to the Principal Designer and the Client – both commercial and domestic. We can carry out the pre-start site inspections and write the Pre-Construction Information Pack to give to your Principal Contractor/ builder, so they can factor in the health, safety and welfare requirements they are legally obliged to. We can also act as the Principal Contractor/ builder’s H&S advisor, making sure he has everything in place to run a safe project. This may include writing his Construction Phase Health & Safety Plan or carrying out site inspections.
- We can also help in assessing your chosen sub-contractors for their health and safety compliance, and reviewing the working documents supplied.
- If required we can also monitor safety progress on site.
- We can write your site Risk Assessments and help with your Method Statements to ensure that you are seen as compliant by your clients. Our Risk Assessment and Method Statement forms have been developed to be very user friendly – the idea being if they are easy to use your site staff will use them. And by using them it will help create a safer working environment.
