The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 (CDM 2015) came into force on 6 April 2015, replacing CDM 2007.
CDM 2015 applies to all building and construction work including new build, renovation, refurbishment, extensions, conversions, demolition, dismantling, repair and maintenance and will almost certainly have an impact on any person or organisation who is involved to any extent in any such construction project.
CDM 2015 is subject to certain transitional provisions which apply to construction projects that start before the Regulations come into force and continue beyond that date.
This half-day course aims to provide delegates with;
- An awareness of the ‘key changes’ included within the CDM 2015 regulations;
- An understanding of the various ‘duty holders’ and their responsibilities under the regulations;
- Knowledge on the application of the regulations to various types of construction project.
Who should attend?
This course is intended for anyone who is involved in construction projects that attract legal duties and responsibilities under CDM 2015. This will include clients, designers and contractors involved with construction work.
A working knowledge of CDM 2007 would be an advantage but is not essential for delegates attending this course.
