CDM REGULATIONS 2007 ACOP PDF

It states in the introduction that the key aim of CDM is to integrate health and safety into the management of the project and to encourage everyone involved to work together to: Improve planning and management of projects from the beginning Identify risks early so they can be eliminated or reduced at the design or planning stage and the remaining risks can be properly managed Target health and safety effort to where it can do the most good Avoid unnecessary bureaucracy Manage the risks not the paperwork The regulations are intended to focus attention on planning and management and to ensure that health and safety considerations are treated as an essential part of the project and not an afterthought or bolt on extra. The effort invested in planning and managing health and safety should be proportionate to the risks and complexity of the project. All focus should be on the actions necessary to reduce and manage risk. Unnecessary paperwork which adds little to risk management can be a dangerous distraction from the real business of risk reduction and management.

The effort invested in planning and managing health and safety should be proportionate to the risks and complexity of the project. All focus should be on the actions necessary to reduce and manage risk.

Unnecessary paperwork which adds little to risk management can be a dangerous distraction from the real business of risk reduction and management. Application of the Regulations The regulations are divided into 5 parts; Part 1 deals with matters of interpretation and application. Part 2 covers general management duties which apply to all construction projects including those which are non notifiable. Part 3 sets out additional management duties which apply to notifiable projects projects where the construction phase has a total duration of more than 30 working days or the construction processes involves more than person days or shifts.

Part 4 of the regulations apply to all construction work carried out on construction sites, and covers physical safeguards which need to be provided to prevent danger.

Part 5 of the regulations covers issues of civil liability; transitional provisions which will apply during the period when the regulations come into force, and amendments and revocations of other legislation. Construction work is performed on structures, which are also defined by the Regulations as: Any building, timber, masonry, metal or reinforced concrete structure, railway line or siding, tramway line, dock, harbour, inland navigation, tunnel, shaft, bridge, viaduct, waterworks, reservoir, pipe or pipeline, cable, aqueduct, sewer, sewage works, gasholder, road, airfield, sea defence works, river works, drainage works, earthworks, lagoon, dam, wall, caisson, mast, tower, pylon, underground tank, earth retaining structure, or structure designed to preserve or alter any natural feature, fixed plant and any other structure similar to the foregoing; Any formwork, falsework, scaffold or other structure designed or used to provide support or means of access during construction work.

Paragraph 21 of the ACoP states that if the risk is medium to high for example where the work involves the following; Structural alterations; Deep excavations and those in unstable and contaminated ground; Unusual working methods or safeguards; Ionising radiation or other significant health hazards; Nearby high voltage power lines; Risk of falling into water which is, or may become fast flowing; Diving; Heavy or complex lifting operations; then something closer to the construction phase plan will be needed.

When carrying out demolition, regulation 29 requires those in control of the work to produce a written plan showing how danger will be prevented.

Managing health and safety in construction

The original aim of the CDM was to reduce injuries and fatalities in the construction sector by improving the management of health, safety and welfare. The original regulations made great strides in putting responsibility for safety where it could most effectively be handled; beginning with design and also ensuring that no one in the supply chain, including clients, could avoid responsibility. Unfortunately, the impact of the regulations was diluted by lack of clarity regarding responsibilities, complex drafting and the somewhat justified perception that compliance required endless paperwork. The results were published in April The two key areas examined were: the extent to which the revisions met their objectives; and the cost implications of the revisions. The research results were mixed.
