  1. CDM 2007 Training Session 9 – Summary & Where Next? Version: September 07

  2. Key points (1) • Industry and HSE have worked in partnership to revise and simplify the CDM Regulations and combine them with the CHSW Regulations • The new regulations apply if you are involved in construction and will help you to improve health and safety in the industry • Regulations apply to all construction work • Projects for non-domestic clients and lasting longer than 30 days or involving 500 person days of work have to be notified to HSE CDM 2007 Summary – Slide 2

  3. Key points (2) • Notification triggers appointment of additional duty holders and duties • Principal contractor • CDM co-ordinator • Construction phase plan • Health and safety file • Most duties remain on clients, designers and contractors regardless of notification CDM 2007 Summary – Slide 3

  4. Clients – Summary • Duties on all clients, unless they are a genuine domestic client • Clients have significant influence over the health and safety of construction projects • Ensure that all those involved in the construction project are competent • Ensure the construction team focuses on effective planning and management of risk - actively drive out wasteful bureaucracy • Provide the right information to the right people at the right time • The key advisor to clients for notifiable projects is the CDM co-ordinator • Clients and CDM co-ordinators are not required to supervise construction work on site CDM 2007 Summary – Slide 4

  5. CDM co-ordinators - Summary • CDM co-ordinator has to be appointed for notifiable projects • Role is to advise the client on health and safety issues during the design and planning phases • Advise about selecting competent designers and contractors • Advise on suitability of the initial construction phase plan • Also need to: • Ensure HSE is notified of the work • Help identify and pass on key information • Co-ordinate health and safety during planning and design work • Prepare a health and safety file • Paperwork should be risk focussed and project specific • actively drive out wasteful bureaucracy • Do not have to supervise or monitor work on site CDM 2007 Summary – Slide 5

  6. Designers - Summary • If you are design or specify building work, then you are a designer with duties under CDM (a wide definition) • Apply the ERI(C) principles • ‘Eliminate’ hazards and ‘reduce’ risks during design and ‘inform’ others about remaining risks • Forget detailed design risk assessments – simply think through the buildability, usability, maintainability and deconstructability • Adopt a teamwork approach – if in doubt ask for advice from contractors and other specialists CDM 2007 Summary – Slide 6

  7. Principal Contractors - Summary • Clients should appoint a principal contractor (PC) for notifiable projects • PC should ensure that the construction phase is properly planned, managed, monitored and resourced • PC should produce a construction phase health and safety plan • PC should ensure all workers and contractors are competent and provided with suitable induction, information and training • Co-operate fully with other dutyholders Manage health and safety on site, not the paperwork CDM 2007 Summary – Slide 7

  8. Contractors and workers - Summary • Not start work until they have obtained sufficient pre-construction information form the client or PC • Plan, manage and monitor their own work to make sure that workers are safe • Ensure they and those they appoint are competent and adequately resourced • Co-operate and co-ordinate with others • Work in accordance with the construction phase plan and agreed methods of work CDM 2007 Summary – Slide 8

  9. Site health & safety - Summary • Equivalent to the duties under the old CHSW Regulations • Applies to all construction sites • Duties on every contractor and every other person who controls construction work • Some changes that need to be applied, such as more needed on preventing access to sites and arrangements for demolition CDM 2007 Summary – Slide 9

  10. Competence & training - Summary • Competence involves knowledge of the tasks / risks and sufficient experience / ability to carry out the work safely • CDM requires all organisation and individuals to be competent for the work they do • Competence assessment should be proportionate to the risk, size and complexity of the work • New competence criteria in the ACoP CDM 2007 Summary – Slide 10

  11. Worker engagement & communication - Summary • Provide the right information to the right people at the right time • Effective engagement with workers can result in better safety standards and improved productivity • Co-operation and co-ordination is a key element of CDM 2007 CDM 2007 Summary – Slide 11

  12. HSE’s expectations on the construction industry • A change in attitude is needed to deliver the much needed improvements in construction health and safety • A ‘business as usual’ approach is not acceptable • Industry needs to take ownership of the management of risk, show leadership and work in partnership • Focus on effective planning and managing risk • Ensure people are competent • Reduce bureaucracy and paperwork CDM 2007 Summary – Slide 12
