CDM Co-ordinator

The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007 place legal duties on various parties involved in a construction project. The aim of the regulations is to ensure health and safety is addressed at all stages of a project from design through construction and maintenance and ultimately to disposal/demolition.

CDM Co-ordinators are responsible for advising and assisting Clients to comply with their duties under the regulations, in particular to ensure the project is properly managed and that competent Designers and Contractors are appointed.

As the Client adviser on a notifiable project the CDM Co-ordinator has defined responsibilities under the CDM Regulations, as follows:

  • Identifying, collecting and communicating pre-construction information to designers and contractors
  • Co-ordinate health and safety aspects of the design and promote co-operation between designers
  • Notify the HSE
  • Advise the Client on the suitability of the Construction Phase Health and Safety Plan and on the adequacy of site welfare facilities
  • Collect information and prepare the Health and Safety File for handover at the completion of the construction work

Frizzell Safety Services have the competence and experience to carry out the role of the CDM Co-ordinator on all small and medium projects.
