CDM Regulations

Overview

Remember the days in your youth when you’d build houses with those brightly-coloured bricks? Ah, simpler times. Whilst those experiences might have stood you in good stead for your future career, modern construction is a little more complicated. That probably goes without saying.

If you’re involved in any construction project, you’ll likely have heard of three little letters: CDM. But what do they mean? Well, they’re a set of regulations for Construction (Design and Management), which are used for managing the health, safety and welfare of construction projects. They’re there to help keep you and your colleagues as safe as possible on site. You’ll all have legal duties under CDM Regulations 2015, so it’s important to understand them. And that’s what this course is all about. Handy, right?

By the end of this course, you'll be able to:

  • Define the basics of CDM regulations and how they affect you
  • Explain how CDM affects different roles, such as clients, designers and contractors
  • Identify the three main documents required for CDM Regulations 2015
  • Demonstrate understanding of the CDM Regulations 2015 in a variety of situations

Why should I take this course

If you have any role in the construction industry, the CDM Regulations 2015 will need to be applied. This includes new build, demolition, refurbishment, extensions, conversions, repair and maintenance. Even if you just make the tea for the grafters, it’d be useful to know this stuff. Understanding and implementing the CDM regulations has far-reaching consequences, and has an integral role in keeping everyone safe on site.
