    The 5 parts of CDM



    As a client, it is important to be aware that the Construction Design and Management Regulations are applicable to every construction project in Great Britain. Whether your project is large or small, long or short, CDM regulations apply to all types of projects, including domestic ones.

    CDM client duties encompass appointing competent duty holders such as Principal Designers and Principal Contractors, providing project information including site details and hazards, establishing effective management arrangements for coordination, ensuring sufficient time and resources for safe project execution, and notifying the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) for qualifying projects. By fulfilling these responsibilities, clients prioritise the health, safety, and welfare of all involved parties, contributing to a secure and well-managed construction project.
