From the outset, the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) has shown commitment to Health and Safety in the construction and delivery of London 2012.
From this commitment the ODA commissioned a report, funded by the HSE and the ICE R&D Enabling Fund to review duty holder roles and their implementation of the CDM 2007 in the construction of London 2012, and to ascertain lessons learned and best practice, which could then be incorporated in the wider UK Construction and Design industry.
Some of the main objectives of this report were to review the effectiveness of the 2007 regulations as implemented by duty holders and to assess the extent to which CDM negatively or positively impacted the construction of London 2012.
With the upcoming revision of CDM 2007 by the HSE the lessons learned in the construction of 2012 will be crucial in determining the effectiveness of CDM and assessing which changes need to be undertaken.
