CDM is an abbreviation for 'Construction Design and Management'. The 2007 regulations place legal duties on almost everyone involved in construction.
CDM training courses are targeted predominantly at those who practice as Planning Supervisors and wish to continue their careers as CDM Coordinators. Training courses offer a good awareness of responsibilities for clients, designers and contractors. They provide people involved in construction work with an overview and an understanding of the new CDM Regulations 2007 and ACoPs and how this impacts their work.
A simple overview course would typically be one day in duration and cover the basics, however a more in depth course would be that of a coordinator and would typically be three days in duration with a view to providing the course attendee with a good understanding of the subject.
If you are involved in controlling site work then you have health & safety responsibilities. You need to check that site conditions are safe before any work commences and you need to ensure that scheduled work is not going to put site workers at risk, this applies regardless of the size of the site.
Those with legal duties are commonly known as 'dutyholders'. As stated by the Health & Safety Executive dutyholders under CDM 2007 include clients, CDM Coordinators, Designers, Principal Contractors, Contractors and Workers.
If you don't comply with your duties under CDM 2007 it could result in construction on your site being stopped by the Health & Safety Executive or your local authority and additional work maybe needed to rectify matters. In the most serious circumstances you may be prosecuted.
