The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015
The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 (CDM 2015) came into
force in Great Britain on 6 April 2015. They set out what people involved in construction
work need to do to protect themselves from harm and anyone the work affects.
Whatever your role in construction, CDM aims to improve health and safety in the
industry by helping you to:
sensibly plan the work so the risks involved are managed from start to finish
have the right people for the right job at the right time
cooperate and coordinate your work with others
have the right information about the risks and how they are being managed
communicate this information effectively to those who need to know
consult and engage with workers about the risks and how they are being managed
CDM 2015 is subject to certain transitional arrangements, for construction projects that began before 6 April 2015 and continue
beyond that date.
HSE has published Legal Series guidance that supports CDM 2015 and explains it in more detail.
