CDM stands for the Construction (Design & Management) Regulations 2015. This latest version of the regulations has been in force for over six years and applies to all construction projects in Great Britain.

There are three crucial documents required for construction projects under CDM 2015. The pre-construction information, the construction phase plan, and the health and safety file. These three documents contain the important health and safety information required at each stage of a construction project. It is important to engage early with and expert to help capture the knowledge and information required that will help safety critical aspects of the project further down the line.

There were some slight tweaks between the previous 2007 version and the current 2015 version of the regulations. But these documents should sound familiar. The pre-construction information, the construction phase plan, and the health and safety file were also needed under the previous version of CDM. But WHEN we need them, and WHO is responsible for producing them, well, that has changed.

So even if you have been familiar with CDM for many years, it's worth a quick refresh to make sure you are up to speed with the latest CDM document requirements.

It is simply not enough to say I wasn't aware of my duties, it is up to clients to find out the information and make themselves aware of their legal duties.
