What is CDM?

Construction Design and Management (CDM) is a set of regulations in the United Kingdom that aim to improve health and safety in the construction industry. The CDM regulations require everyone involved in a construction project to take responsibility for managing the risks associated with the project, including the client, designers, contractors, and workers.

CDM Regulations

The CDM regulations apply to all construction projects, regardless of size or duration, and aim to ensure that health and safety is considered at every stage of a project’s life cycle, from design to construction and through to completion.

The regulations place specific duties on each of the parties involved in a construction project, including the duty to plan and manage the project, identify and eliminate or control risks, and cooperate and coordinate with other parties involved in the project.

The CDM regulations were first introduced in 1994 and were updated in 2007 and 2015 to reflect changes in the construction industry and to align with European Union legislation. The regulations are enforced by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) in the UK.
