Description

CDM 2015: your essential guide to Designer duties

This seminar will demystify the regulations and help you understand how to apply health and safety design risk management on your projects. CDM should be utilised as a collaborative tool, developing the design and construction process to enhance health and safety in the built environment, ensuring that we consider design implications through reductive steps.

You, as architects, are best placed to manage the health and safety risks of your designs on the construction workforce and must apply practical knowledge in design risk management. The speaker will aim to demystify the regulations and help you understand how to deliver your duties. CDM should be utilised as a collaborative tool, developing the design and construction process to enhance health and safety in the built environment, ensuring that we consider design implications through reductive steps. This forms an integral part of the review process; it is not a ‘bolt-on’ considered after design decisions have been made.

This seminar will illustrate how CDM can add coherency in the consideration of design implications, while also adopting a ‘practicable’ approach to risk. This will give you, as Designers, an appreciation of your obligations within CDM 2015 and provide guidance on how to critically examine your work, giving proportionate consideration to avoiding, reducing and controlling hazards.

This seminar will cover:

  • Background to the passing of the CDM legislation and it’s development to today
  • Other relevant construction legislation of which you should be aware
  • The CDM process timeline on projects
  • CDM 2015 Duty Holders and their obligations
  • CDM as a creative and collaborative process
  • CDM as the management of risk, rather than of health and safety
  • Considering the hierarchy of risk
  • The differences between ‘safety’ and ‘health’
  • The definition of ‘Designer’ as described under CDM2015
  • Understanding the Designer’s duties with regard to hazard and risk
