Ceca publishes construction regulations guidance

hand

The Civil Engineering Contractors Association (Ceca) has published guidance for Construction (Design & Management) Regulations 2015.

Entitled Construction (Design and Management) Regulations: A good practice guide for the civil engineering sector, the good practice guide addresses a gap in support for those trying to work with the new regulations.

The latest version of the Construction (Design & Management) regulations came into force on 6 April 2015, but the Health & Safety Executive did not publish an approved code of practice to complement the new regulations.

Ceca chief executive Alasdair Reisner said the guidance had been prepared following extensive consultation with its members. He said it provides a model for how industry-led initiatives can lead to optimal health and safety outcomes.

“The health and safety record of the UK’s infrastructure and construction sectors has improved immeasurably in the last thirty years,” said Reisner. “Nonetheless, there are always further steps we can take to protect the health and safety of people who come into contact with, or work in, our industry.

“That’s why Ceca is delighted to be able to make this guide, which covers the responsibilities of all parties through the life of a civil engineering project, available to the whole industry for the wider public good.”
