Construction health and safety for social landlords – Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015

Virtual workshop

Update your knowledge of the construction health and safety regulations with this CPD-accredited one-day workshop.

With the focus on the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations as they stand now, this full day workshop is crammed full of useful information to help you to better understand the requirements and put them into practice within your organisation.

As well as learning about when CDM applies to works and what exactly is required by social landlords, you’ll also get the opportunity to work through practical exercises.

The day will cover elements such as:

  • Am I the CDM client (in the social housing arena) and what should I be doing?
  • Competence and resource assessments prior to appointment (what do I need to do?)
  • Making appointments in writing (when and to whom)
  • Client’s brief – scope of works (can this be the PCI?)
  • Principal designer/designer duties (overview)
  • Pre-construction information (what should be included, can this be the scope of works?)
  • Principal contractor/contractor duties (overview)
  • Construction phase plan (can this be RAMS?)
  • Clients’ duties during the works (overview)
  • Monitoring and arrangements
  • Health and safety file (compiling, making available and updating).

Updated for 2021, the workshop will cover three new key areas:

  • Design Risk Management – All designers have a duty to provide and accompany their designs with a design risk management register which highlights the design risks that cannot be designed out but which the Principal Contractor/contractor will be faced with and must deal with during the construction. We’ll cover the above and provide examples of a DRM spreadsheet
  • Significant Risk Registers (SRR) – What is a Significant Risk Register? Who should complete this? Who requires access to the SRR and, at the end of the project, what happens to this important document? We will provide an example of an SRR
  • The draft Building Safety Bill – How will this impact on CDM 2015?.

There will also be time to hear about those who ‘got it wrong’, what it meant for them, and what can be learned from their mistakes.

Who should attend?

  • Health and safety professionals
  • Board members
  • Chief executives
  • Directors
  • Asset managers
  • Property services and in-house DLO managers
  • Development directors and managers.

Available for CPD points, this one-day workshop will be delivered by Raymond Bone and colleagues from Abbey Construction Consultants.
