BLM - The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015
The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015
Seminar, by BLM
In 1994 the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations (CDM Regs) were introduced to implement the Temporary or Mobile Construction Sites Directive (TMCS) (1992/57 EEC). Further revisions were made in 1998 and 2007. This presentation covers the 2015 CDM revisions.

Topics covered include managing risks by applying the general principles of prevention; appointing the right people and organisations at the appropriate time; making sure everyone has the information, instruction, training and supervision they need to carry out their jobs in a way that secures health and safety; how duty holders should co-operate and communicate with one another and coordinate their work, and; consulting workers and engaging with them to promote and develop effective measures to secure health, safety and welfare.
