Princial Designer - CDM Coordination
Health and Safety
Monro White Hilton provides health and safety consultancy services specifically tailored to clients’ project needs. We advise and assist clients in complying with current health and safety legislation under the CDM Regulations.
Experience and Resources
We have the advantage of being able to call on a specific dedicated specialist consultant team with expert knowledge of the construction industry and the duties of all parties under the CDM Regulations who can assist the client in complying with heath and safety legislation.
CDM 2007, and the current CDM 2015, impose significant duties upon the Client, including ensuring that adequate procedures are in place to manage Health & Safety throughout the project. Clients' are obliged to make early appointments of advisors who will assist the client to co-ordinate health and safety issues during the project life cycle.
A ‘Principal Contractor’ must be appointed to manage health and safety during the construction phase (note: the Client assumes by default, each role until an appointment is made). The CDM Co-ordinator’s role, which will become that of a Principal Designer under CDM 2015, requires them to establish the vital “thread” of health and safety from concept to completion of a project. This includes notification to the Health & Safety Executive, working closely with the design team throughout the design and construction process to achieve hazard elimination and advice and assistance with regards to management arrangements for Health & Safety.
