The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 (CDM 2015) set out what people involved in construction work need to do to protect themselves from harm and anyone the work affects. The HSE has produced guidance on the regulations, Managing health and safety in construction L153.

Key elements to securing construction health and safety:

CDM 2015 Regulations place duties on all those who can contribute to the health and safety of a construction project. The Regulations give specific duties to Clients, Principal Designers, Designers, Principal Contractors, Contractors and Workers, and require each “duty holder” to understand and fulfil their obligations on a construction project.
This may include the production of certain documents that will assist the management of a project and provide information to the people involved. The degree of detail as well as the time and effort required to comply with your legal duties need only be in proportion to the nature, size and level of health and safety risks involved in the project.
Therefore, for small projects with minimal health and safety risks, you will only be required to take simple, straightforward steps and few, if any, specialist skills will be needed.
J&B Safety supports many small contractors with their CDM responsibilities throughout the UK and can provide a range of services to duty holders helping them ensure a smooth transition to CDM 2015.
