The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations (CDM) impose a statutory framework for the management of health and safety in construction. They place duties on everyone involved with construction work including clients, designers, professionals, main and subcontractors, and site workers. They support and interact with a number of other key pieces of construction-related safety legislation. The CDM Regulations were updated in April 2015 and this course covers these changes.

This course is ideal for HSE practitioners, those involved in constructions, and/or those affected by the CDM framework
