CDM from Safetyform

The Construction (Design & Management) Regulations 2015 (CDM 2015) apply to all construction work including new build, refurbishment, alterations, conversions, repair and maintenance, and demolition, regardless of the size and duration of the project.

We work in partnership to eliminate the potential risks of today’s operations, removing their associated costs. As a result, your organisation can focus its resources on improving performance, and achieving its full potential.

Client CDM Advisor

Whilst any external advisor cannot assume the legal duties, responsibilities and/or functions of the ‘Client’, some dutyholders require independent health and safety advice to supplement their own skills, knowledge and experience (SKE). The procurement of specialist expertise to support the delivery of quality construction projects may be both necessary and effective, particularly in the short term while further expertise is developed within the Client’s organisation

Consequently, although not a specific role defined in the regulations, some customers appoint ‘advisors’ to support them in the discharge of their client duties under CDM.

 

Safetyform provides a fully comprehensive CDM advisory service with a designated ‘CDM Advisor’ allocated as your single point of contact throughout the whole project. Working closely with you to ensure that you fulfil your duties as required by the Regulations.

Principal Designer Appointment or Support

Design decisions made during the pre-construction phase significantly influence the health and safety of everyone affected by the work. CDM 2015 requires the Client to appoint a Principal Designer and Principal Contractor where there is, or is likely to be, more than one contractor working on a project. The Principal Designer (which may be an organisation or individual for smaller projects) therefore takes control of the pre-construction phase of any project involving more than one contractor.

As the Principal Designer appointed to your project, we will undertake a number of activities to fulfil our role and help you discharge your duties effectively.

Construction Health & Safety Advisor

Safetyform provide advisory services to small and medium sized contracting organisations, to ensure compliance with the duties of the Principal Contractor.
