Construction, Design And Management Regulations 2015

Construction Design and Management (CDM) regulations are the backbone of health and safety in the construction industry. This one-day programme is designed to bring the requirements of the regulations alive, explaining when and where they apply in an engaging and memorable way. Firstly we clarify just what is and is not deemed construction work, before reviewing the key statutory roles and what records and documentation must be maintained.

As with all of our in-house courses, this session is suitable for group bookings of between four and 12 delegates, and can be delivered either at our own premises or at yours. So, if you’re looking to train a number of people in your team in one sitting, this workshop is a cost-effective way of doing so.

This course can also be delivered live via Zoom if your delegates are on different sites or locations.

Who is this course for?

This in-house course is suitable for clients, health and safety advisers, estates and facilities managers and project managers who implement construction or maintenance projects.

It provides a comprehensive review of the current requirements, outlining the roles of the client, principal designer, principal contractor and more. When it concludes, delegates will be well equipped to make any necessary changes to their operating procedures, ensuring they comply with the regulations and follow best practice in the field.

What does the course cover?

Delegates will learn about the types of work included in the current definition of ‘construction work,’ along with the main roles and responsibilities and how these can be met. The course also explores documentation such as the pre-construction information and construction phase plan, which are essential parts of the effective management of both large and small construction projects.

Examples of what a typical course would cover are as follows:

  • Why the 2015 CDM regulations were introduced
  • The scope of construction work
  • Work on structures and how these are defined
  • The main responsibilities of the key players, including the client, principal designer, principal contractor, contractor and designers
  • How the regulations affect domestic clients
  • The role of the pre-construction information
  • The role and contents of the construction phase plan
  • Developing a project health and safety file
  • The importance of checking competence levels
