13 © Imperial College LondonPage 13 Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007 The key aim of CDM 2007 is to integrate health and safety into the management of the project and to encourage everyone to work together to:- a)Improve the planning and management of projects from the very start- b)Identify hazards early on, so they can be eliminated or reduced at the design or planning stages and the remaining risks properly managed-

14 © Imperial College LondonPage 14 Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007 c) Target effort where it will do most good, in terms of health and safety and d) Discourage unnecessary bureaucracy. The Regulations are intended to focus attention on planning and management throughout the project, from concept design onward. The aim is for health and safety considerations to be treated as an essential, but normal part of a projects development, not as an afterthought or bolt-on extra.
