Construction is a dangerous industry and the main purpose of the CDM Regulations
2007 is to assist in reducing deaths, injuries and ill health as a result of construction
The main aim of the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations, CDM, is to
minimise the likelihood of accidents in the construction industry through improved
planning and management of Health and Safety.
CDM covers a very broad range of construction activities such as building, civil
engineering, engineering construction work, demolition, site preparation and site
clearance. It is important to note that construction under CDM also extends to other
less obvious activities including, renovation, redecoration, installation, maintenance,
and dismantling of structures.
The CDM Regulations essentially sets out a health and safety project management
tool that covers all the stages of a construction project starting with the initial
design concept through to completion of the works.
The CDM Regulations impose legal duties on Clients, Designers, and Contractors for
all construction projects even for simple, short duration work. However, for those
projects that are likely to take more than 30 days or involve more than 500 person
days of construction work, additional management duties are imposed and projects
are notifiable to the regulators.
