REVISED CONSTRUCTION Design & Management (CDM) regulations will be launched at the ICE next month.
On 9 April the Health & Safety Executive will launch new regulations to replace CDM 1994, toughening up the industry's approach to health and safety.
To launch the new regulations and the associated Approved Code of Practice (ACoP) and industry guidance, the ICE is to hold an evening meeting on 4 April at One Great George Street.
CDM 2007 predominantly requires clients to take a greater responsibility for health and safety on their projects: they will no longer be able to discharge the responsibilities to a client agent or planning supervisor.
Instead, the client will need to employ a CDM co-ordinator who will advise them on health and safety issues.
igners will now have to design out major hazards by considering how the project will be constructed. They will also have to highlight construction risks to the principal contractor.
Contractor's responsibilities will remain largely the same, but they can expect higher-quality information to be fed from the client and designers.
Atkins chief executive Keith Clarke and HSE chief inspector of construction, Stephen Williams, will give presentations at the ICE launch.
