HSE to re-write the CDM Regulations

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has told an Association for Project Safety (APS) event that it is to redrafting the Construction (Design & Management) Regulations for reissue in 2014.

The detail of the new regulatory package will not be known until a HSE Board Paper is presented in December. But the HSE told the APS that it will be taking account of the current under-implementation of the EU Temporary Mobile Construction Sites Directive. Additional duties over and above the requirements of the EU Directive will be considered by the HSE provided that they bring tangible benefits to construction health and safety.

The APS said it would be highlighting to the HSE where it believes that the existing CDM Regulations can be improved, and the EU Directive better implemented in the UK, without incurring additional burdens upon business and the construction industry.
