Are you ready to make the change?

CDM Regulations


Whats the current situation in NI?

No changes this year - although the 2015 CDM Regs are in force in Great Britain from the 6th April 2015 the NI Assembly are yet to approve the legislation.

To quote HSE NI directly:

"The closing date for submissions on our Consultation Exercise on the proposed new CDMR for NI only ended recently. By the time we take on board the comments and draft new regulations for submission to the Minister and DETI Committee, it will probably be towards the end of this year before we enact CDMR 2015 for NI. (Oct / November)."
HSE NI April 2015

Therefore CDM 2007 Regs Still apply throughout NI.


We can help.

WE HAVE:

Over 15 years experience in Design Health and Safety

Are Registered Members of the Association of Project Safety

Since the introduction of the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007, we have acted as a CDM Coordinator on some of Northern Ireland most prestigious projects.

We advise both the Client and Designers on health and safety issues during the design and planning phases of construction work and have the knowledge and experience of planning, management, construction, and communications.

We understand the design and management roles, and will advise you on the competence of the duty holders, manage the risks using our CDM Risk Register, prepare the project Health and Safety paperwork and make the required notification to the HSE.

As CDM Coordinators we bring together designers, construction teams and Health & Safety advisors prior to commencement of building and are responsible for reviewing design changes throughout the construction phase.

All CDM Coordinators should be appointed as early in the design and planning process as soon practicable.
