With the advent of the Construction Design and Management (CDM) Regulations 2015, it is vital, now more then ever, that clients commissioning construction work take their responsibilities seriously. The 2015 Regulations (4 and 5) set out the client’s duty to make suitable arrangements for managing a project and maintaining and reviewing these arrangements throughout, so the project is carried out in a way that manages the health and safety risks.
For those with little or no construction experience, this single area can be a minefield!
The HSE suggests clients could draw on the advice of a competent person if they are required to appoint such a person under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 and it is in this capacity that we can help you.
With a track record of providing support for local businesses, we have considerable experience in helping clients ensure their construction projects are managed safely and economically. From machinery moves to the building of warehouses, our services are economic and designed to help those who have little experience of construction projects, to help you comply.
We are delighted with the feedback we have received as a result of a recent project, where the Client was keen to make sure that the residents and families of those staying at the home, were protected at all times and that those carrying out the work did so safely.
Working with the Trustees and Managers of the home, we talked them through the process, helped them make sure the contractors being used were competent and submitted the required paperwork and documentation to the HSE. Throughout the project we have visited the site, to discuss any changes that may be required and provided feedback to the Client on the contractors works.
We are delighted to report that the project was completed safely.
