CDM Regulations


The Construction Design & Management Regulations (CDM) are the main set of regulations for managing the health, safety and welfare of construction projects. CDM applies to all building and construction work and includes new build, demolition, refurbishment, extensions, conversions, repair and maintenance. Everyone controlling building site work has health and safety responsibilities. Checking that working conditions are healthy and safe before work begins, and ensuring that the proposed work is not going to put others at risk, requires planning and organisation. This applies whatever the size of the site.
This occupational safety training course provides delegates with an understanding of the Construction, Design and Management Regulations 2007. It offers guidance on planning and designing for health and safety within construction projects and the roles and responsibilities encompassed within the CDM Regulations.
