The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations
The Construction Design & Management Regulations (CDM Regulations) are the specific set of regulations for managing health and safety in construction projects.
CDM regulations apply to all building and construction work and includes new build, demolition, refurbishment, extensions, conversions, repair and maintenance.
Even the simplest tasks, such as arranging routine maintenance or minor building work, require adequate time to plan and manage the work safely.
Whatever your role in the industry, CDM regs aim to improve health and safety in construction by helping you to:
Sensibly plan the work so the risks involved are managed from start to finish
Have the right people for the right job at the right time
Cooperate and coordinate your work with others
Have the right information about the risks and how they are being managed
Communicate this information effectively to those who need to know
Consult and engage with workers about the risks and how they are being managed
