The CITB and HSE have now published draft industry guidance for those involved in construction projects. As these are the most significant changes to safety management in construction since the 2007 regulations, we advise anyone involved to make themselves familiar with their contents.
This is particularly important if you are a contractor or client, involved in small projects, as the requirements are becoming more onerous.
The guides can be found here: http://www.citb.co.uk/health-safety-and-other-topics/health-safety/construction-design-and-management-regulations/
We are currently working with our clients to bring them up to speed with the changes and will be holding some seminars to outline what is required.
If you would like more advice, then please call us.
