2 CDM 2015 Objectives maintain or improve worker protection simplify the regulatory package improve health and safety standards on small construction sites implement the Temporary or Mobile Construction Sites Directive (TMCSD) - in a proportionate way discourage bureaucracy 2 K2 Drafts/Construction

3 CDM 2015 “Not about radical change for well- managed Projects” Anthony Lees HSE

4 CDM 2015: The Changes 1.CDM-C ‘replaced’ by a new duty holder: the Principal Designer 2.Client appoints Principal Designer & Principal Contractor if more than one contractor 3.Construction Phase Plan for ALL Construction Projects 4. Notification criteria aligned with TMCSD 5.Duties extend to domestic Clients 6.Removal of explicit competency requirements (CDM2007 Reg.4) 7.

5 The Principal Designer (Reg. 11) “principal designer” : a designer in control of the pre-construction phase. CDM 2014 requires the appointment of a Principal Designer (and a PC) if a project involves more than one contractor. Principal Designer must plan, manage, monitor and coordinate the pre-construction phase of a project promptly provide pre-construction information liaise with the principal contractor as appropriate for the duration of the project prepare (and revise from time to time) the h & s file. 5 K2 Drafts/Construction

7 CDM 2015:Construction Phase Plan (Regs 12 & 13) Prepared by the PC or the Contractor for ALL Construction Projects - a proportionate approach a document recording the health and safety arrangements, site rules and special measures for the construction worksite rules HSE propose to provide templates for SME /domestic projects. 7 K2 Drafts/Construction

8 CDM 2015: Notification Thresholds projects lasting more than 30 working days and having more than 20 workers working simultaneously at any point in the project; or exceeding 500 person-days. notification of domestic clients’ projects that exceed this threshold. No longer the trigger for additional appointments 8 K2 Drafts/Construction

11 CDM2015: points of interest? The Principal Designer need not be designing for the appointed Project. but he must be a designer, and he must have a close overview A Notifiable Project might not need a PD or PC e.g. the Project only involves one contractor No legal requirement for a CPP to be available on Site and it need not exist in hard copy form. F10 still to be displayed on Site

12 CDM 2015: Pros and Cons Pros Simpler Regulations Targeted Guidance Duty Holder approach Reduced Notification TMCSD transposed (?) Cons (?) Burden on PD No ACoP Gold Plating More Change! K2 Drafts/Construction 12

13 CDM2015 General Duties Appointed duty holders have and maintain competence Cooperate with the Project Team Cooperate with any adjoining Construction Site Report recognised danger to those in control Provide comprehensible info. and instruction

14 The CDM 2015 Client Maintain management arrangements, time and other resources. Provide preconstruction information Ensure adequate welfare for construction workers Ensure CPP prepared Maintain health and safety files Ensure appointments comply with duties Notify HSE (where relevant)
