CDM Regulations

Under CDM it is the responsibility of the Client to appoint a CDM Co-ordinator as early as possible during the design and planning work for the project so that they can advise the Client on the subsequent appointment of others. It is the CDM Co-ordinator's function to co-ordinate the health and safety aspects of design, and for ensuring the pre-tender, or pre-construction information is prepared. The CDM Co-ordinator is also responsible for ensuring the health and safety file is prepared.
