Managing Health and Safety in Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007

The aims of the 2007 CDM Regulations are: to improve the planning and management of projects from their inception; to identify hazards early on so they can be eliminated or reduced at design or planning stage with any remaining risks being properly managed; and to target effort where it can do most good in terms of health and safety and discourage unnecessary bureaucracy.

The CDM Regulations require a client to ensure that their construction project is safe to build, safe to use and safe to maintain. They also require a client to put management arrangements in place, including appointing a CDM co-ordinator, to ensure that construction work can be carried out safely and without risk to health.
