  1. CDM 2015 & informationa view from HSE Louise Brearey Head of Operations HSE London & South-East

  2. Review of CDM 2007 • Key points from research • aims of CDM 2007 largely met, but • 3 concerns: • application and interpretation • coordination not working • Had not tackled bureaucracy • ACoP – how effective?

  3. Main proposed changes to CDM on which we are consulting • Simplification of the Regulations • Applies to projects for domestic clients (Implements the TMCS directive) • Strengthens role of the client • Removes corporate competence requirements & concentrate on site competence • Removal of CDM Coorinator role • Makes designers responsible for coordination in the pre-construction phase • Removal of ACOP (replace with HSE & industry guidance) • Change to thresholds for notification (500 person days or 30 days with 20 contractors)

  4. Tackling bureaucracy Our message remains the same: • The right information • To the right people • At the right time AND

  5. Golden Rule EFFORT ≈ RISK (UNFAMILIARITY)

  6. The right information What information does CDM require (& IS LIKELY TO CONTINUE TO)? • Preconstruction information • Information about the design that others need to manage risks • Information needed to produce the construction phase plan plan • Information for the health and safety file

  7. But there are other H&S information requirements: Risk assessments (method statements), H&S policies, COSHH data / assessments/asbestos survey Training records Inspections Lifting plans Transport management / logistics Fire / emergency / evacuation

  8. Preconstruction • “The site contains no unusual hazards that would be unfamiliar to a competent contractor” – a reasonable concept?

  9. Providing design information • Designers need to provide information about aspects of the design…. • not likely to be obvious to a competent contractor • unusual • likely to be difficult to manage If in doubt, ask those who will use the information

  10. BIM

  11. Construction phase plan • A manual? • “How health and safety will be managed on this site” • Live document not shelf dweller • More than somewhere to file generic risk assessments • How will I monitor? What are the KPIs? • Appendix 2 of current ACoP

  12. Health & Safety File • Description: What will future designers / construction or demolition contractors need to know to MANAGE THE RISKS? • What goes in? • What stays out! • Relevant • Anticipate what users will need?

  13. Golden Rule EFFORT ≈ RISK (UNFAMILIARITY)

  14. Summary • Aim is to manage and control the risks • Paperwork is of value if it contributes to this aim • Remember the user and purpose of the paperwork • CDM Revision an opportunity for change
