The CDM regulations were an attempt to force all parties in the construction process to address safety at no cost to central government. A laudable aim, but it is not having the desired impact because the procedures can be largely achieved by box ticking. Until there is regular policing of sites by some independent authority I do not believe that there will be much improvement. A rigorous analysis of accident data would help enormously.
