The Construction Design and Management Regulations (CDM) have been in place for over a quarter of a century and have, over time, reframed how construction activities are undertaken into a well-designed, planned, considered, risk-based management approach.
The regulations, approved code of practice and guidance provide a structure that clients and duty holders can follow to ensure that construction projects are run successfully and reduce harm to workers and others who might be impacted otherwise.
