CDM Regulations 2015 - 3 Years on – 7th May 2018
The 2015 version of the CDM Regulations has now been law for 3 years. Only recently have there been any high profile prosecutions due to non-compliance on Domestic Projects. There are still a lot of builders / contractors out there who are oblivious to the regulations and are risking big fines that could cripple their businesses. What also needs to be remembered is that ignorance or the regulations is no defence in a court of law. Have a look at the website (www.cdmplan.co.uk) for more information, and remember, EVERY Construction project, no matter how big or how small, requires a construction phase plam.

Happy New Year – 27th December 2015
We wish all our customers a happy new year and hope that 2016 will be a prosperous year for you.
This website went live in April 2015 and has been slowly building to be a leading website for health and safety information to assist builders and construction professionals to comply with the CDM Regulations 2015.
Our website is the best because it fully complies with the requirements of the regulations. The wizard app is a glorified risk assessment tool which doesn’t comply with guidance and it limits access to people with apple or android devices.
Uptake on our website increases per month and feedback has been good.
So in 2016, if you need a construction phase plan that’s fully compliant, please visit our page.
Happy New Year J

Development of Guidance Material - 9th January 2015
Both the joint HSE-industry guidance and the HSE-authored ‘L-series’ guidance are now substantively complete in draft form. HSE has sent the six draft HSE-industry guides to CONIAC members. CONIAC will consider whether it is content that industry guidance steering group has produced guidance which is in accordance with its terms of reference at its meeting on 19 November.
HSE’s Publications Governance Group will consider the drafts of all of the guidance at its meeting in November. Whilst the guidance will necessarily remain as draft until the CDM 2015 regulations have been formally laid, HSE plans to publish the draft L-series guidance on the HSE website on 9 January, in keeping with Government policy of issuing such guidance twelve weeks in advance of legislation coming into force. It is expected that the joint HSE-industry guidance will be published on the CITB website at the same time.
