CDM 2015 - The Role of the Client (1-day)

Aim of the course

The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 (CDM 2015) are designed to:

  • Improve construction related health and safety management
  • Ensure the right people for the right job at the right time to manage the risks on site are in place
  • Focus on effective planning and manage the risk – not the paperwork
