CDM 2015 for Directors – An Overview of Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 for Directors and Senior Managers
This is a CDM 2015 for Directors training course. The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 [CDM] represent a step change in construction health and safety legislation. It brings the CDM 1994 Regulations and the Construction (Health & Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1996 into a single regulatory package providing a clear focus on management, communication, co-operation and competence within the project team.
The ability to understand the CDM Regulations and their implications effectively is an essential skill needed in the industry. This programme has been specifically designed to give delegates the opportunity to understand, refresh and consolidate the knowledge relating to CDM2015.
CDM 2015 seeks to clarify and simplify the regulations; making it easier for duty holders to know what is expected of them. It focuses on active management and planning with a reduction in bureaucracy, to:
- Simplify the assessment of organisations competence,
- Strengthen co-ordination and co-operation between duty holders, particularly designers and contractors, and
- Create a culture that can accommodate the wide range of contractual arrangements.
