The application of CDM is more of an art than a box ticking exercise for compliance. CDM 2015 goes further than previous versions in expecting the construction industry specialists to know their “business”. It takes great skill, knowledge and experience to weave health and safety compliance through the construction design process. The art is to complete it without a specific reference to anything as staccato as legislation and regulation, as often as possible.
Through the use of a case study, this seminar will explore the various duty holder roles and responsibilities, and will explain how, in the pre-construction phase of a project, the Principal Designer is expected to take control of planning, managing and monitoring of health and safety. This seminar will address what must be done, what should be done, and what that might look like in practice, so far as reasonably practicable.
This seminar will cover a wide range of CDM topics including health and safety legal framework and compliance, principles of prevention, and CDM background and context. It will also address design risk management, the pre-construction phase, and will demonstrate what a health and safety file could look like. Legal practicalities, appointments and notification will also be discussed, followed by an interactive Q&A session.
The aim of the seminar is for you to recognise your own strengths and weaknesses for CDM compliance in order to mitigate any shortfalls, as individuals and organisations.
