Risk Assessment for Designers and Contractors Acting as Designers under the CDM Regulations

Courses Overview:

The CDM Regulations 2007 place a wide application on who may be considered a designer, including those on the periphery of design such as those who specify, alter designs, or decide methods by which a task will be executed; those designing fixed plant; those specifying or selecting incorporated materials; contractors undertaking design; temporary works engineers. Designers may include those who arrange for their employees, or others under their control to prepare designs.

CDM 2007 requires Designers to:
Apply the ‘Principles of Prevention’ in order to reduce or control risks by eliminating hazards; reducing or controlling risk; ensuring those who manage risk are fully aware.

The ACoP for CDM 2007 suggests that:
• Designers must not produce designs that cannot be constructed, maintained, used or demolished safely
• Health and safety to be weighed alongside other considerations
• When hazards cannot be eliminated, designers should search for ways to reduce risks
• Designers must provide information required.
