Whilst the designers are concerned to fulfil their obligations under the CDM regulations, it should also be stressed that other legislation also needs to be complied with, including the workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992. These regulations impose duties to design structures which have provision.
The successful management of health and safety within a construction project depends upon site specific information, at an appropriate level of information, being generated, updated and circulated so that the right people receive the right information at the right time.
