CDM Awareness

In construction and property, CDM is an acronym for Construction (Design and Management) Regulations and it governs the health and safety involved in a construction project so focus is put on workforce safety.  The purpose of CDM awareness training, set out in the 2015 regulation, is to identify and implement ways to improve all aspects of health and safety in the construction industry.

The Construction Design and Management Regulations (CDM) 2015 control and harmonise the planning and management of construction projects in the UK.  It’s aim is to safeguard and protect the health and welfare of those working in construction. This HSE guide to CDM awareness, “Need Building Work Done?“, gives those who are planning small scale building works an explanation of how to comply with CDM. It acts as a guide to ensure the construction is safe to build while offering good value to prospective clients

This CDM awareness training covers the core concepts of the regulations.  The course looks at the various roles in a typical construction project along with the key documents that duty holders produce during the project. It starts with an introduction to CDM and covers some of the parameters duty holders monitor during the planning stages of a project.
