We will teach you how to follow CDM Regulations to effectively plan your projects.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understand CDM regulations to help you and your employees work towards compliance with the associated legislation.
  • Learn how to strategically PLAN your projects with the necessary pre-construction information.
  • Learn how to MAINTAIN a safe working construction site.

Course Structure

The course is broken down into 3 main sections:

  1. What are the CDM Regulations?
  2. Planning.
  3. Safe Sites.

Course Overview

Considering that construction accounts for roughly 5% of the total UK workforce, yet it’s responsible for 31% of all workplace fatalities, it’s fair to say that the construction industry is one of the most dangerous sectors to work for. On top of this, there are also 64,000 non-fatal injuries that require medical treatment, and 81,000 cases of work-related ill health every year. This adds up to a total cost of £1 billion in lost working days.

It’s for this reason that the Construction (Design & Management) Regulations were first introduced. Construction projects often involve the use of dangerous equipment, materials, vehicles, and locations.

The job involves working at height, next to large drops, over open bodies of water, or on incomplete structures that could collapse. In addition, worksites tend to be filled with many different people, working on separate tasks, and so it’s easy to see where accidents can happen.

The CDM Regulations help to control the chaos of a construction project, from start to finish and beyond. By creating roles and responsibilities for key duty holders, the regulations ensure that Health & Safety protocols are effectively managed and communicated to everyone involved.

Our CDM Training course simplifies the regulations into three simple sections; the roles and responsibilities of everyone involved; the planning required at each stage of a construction project; and what needs to be considered to keep a site safe.

We offer a range of construction specific courses including LOLER, PUWER, Working at Height and Ladder Safety Training. Take a look at our Construction Health & Safety Courses to see more!

Why is CDM Regulations training important?

It's important that you comply with the law, as well as understand the ways in which it affects you in the workplace.

The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015

Whatever your role in construction, CDM aims to improve health & safety in the industry by helping you to: - sensibly plan your work so that risks 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 correct information about the risks and how to manage them. - communicate this information effectively to those who need to know. - consult and engage with workers about the risks and how they are being managed.

Benefits to Your Business

To help make construction projects safer and easier to manage, the CDM Regulations encourage cooperation between workers, managers, and project leaders. This allows for greater transparency and accountability, which results in safer working practices.

It also improves design and construction solutions because valuable skills from across the board are shared with ease.

You will also drastically reduce delays in your business because any potential setbacks can be addressed thoroughly throughout a project.

Ultimately, you will experience a reduction in costs from avoiding future mistakes, delays, stoppages, and accidents.

It’s important for everyone in your organisation to understand their role under the CDM regulations, so taking the time to train your staff is extremely worthwhile in the long run.
