Virtually everyone involved in a construction project has legal duties under CDM 2015. Whatever your role in construction, CDM aims to improve health and safety in the industry by helping you to sensibly plan the work so the risks involved are managed from start to finish, have the right people for the right job at the right time, cooperate and coordinate your work with others, have the right information about the risks and how they are being manage, communicate this information effectively to those who need to know and consult and engage with workers about the risks and how they are being managed.
After studying this course, you should be able to:
- State who the principal designer is and why they are important
- Describe their duties in the pre-construction phase
- Detail how they interact with other duty holders for the construction phase plan and the health and safety plan.
