Construction (Design & Management) Regulations Planning Supervisor Services
The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations place duties on clients (those for whom the work is being undertaken), planning supervisors, designers and contractors to plan, coordinate and manage health and safety throughout all stages of a construction project. The CDM Regulations will generally apply to construction work, which is notifiable, i.e. lasts for more than thirty days or will involve more than 500 man-days of work. CDM Regulations also apply to non-notifiable work that involves five or more people on site at any one time. The term "construction works" is defined as including activities within the building industry that include civil engineering or engineering construction.
The objective of the legislation is to reduce accidents and ill health in construction by placing appropriate responsibilities on clients, designers and contractors during the design, planning and construction stages of a project.
The majority of sports ground construction projects fall within the scope of regulations. To allow our clients to meet their obligations we can provide planning supervisory services and coordinate the health and safety aspects of project planning in accordance with the CDM regulations.
