The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 came into force on 6 April 2015
The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 (CDM) set out what people need to do in order to plan and manage construction work safely and help you to:
sensibly plan the work so the risks involved are managed from start to finish
have the right people for the right job at the right time
cooperate and coordinate your work with others
have the right information about the risks and how they are being managed
communicate this information effectively to those who need to know
consult and engage with workers about the risks and how they are being managed

Everyone controlling site work has health and safety responsibilities. Checking that working conditions are healthy and safe before work begins and ensuring that the proposed work is not going to put others at risk requires planning and organisation. This applies whatever the size of the site.
