Construction eBulletin


Welcome to the latest edition of Construction Infonet

Construction Infonet is a free eBulletin from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) to provide a regular update on health and safety issues for all in the construction industry.
Construction workers  


HSE has today opened a 10-week consultation on proposals to replace the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007 (CDM 2007).  

The revision of CDM 2007 aims to deliver a substantially simpler set of regulations that are easier to understand and comply with, but which retain vital safety protection.

Key changes being proposed include:

  • replacement of the CDM co-ordinator role with a principal designer role within the project team;
  • introducing a duty on information, instruction, training and supervision to replace the duty to assess competence;
  • removal of the domestic client exemption and transfer of these limited duties to the contractor/designer; and
  • replacement of the Approved Code of Practice (ACOP) with tailored guidance.

None of the proposals on which HSE plans to consult are set in stone:  - we want to hear from those affected to help shape the final regulations.

Read the consultation document and find out how to give us your views

The consultation opens on 31 March 2014 and closes on 6 June 2014
