CDM 2015: Six months on, Developments, experiences and the way forward, Webinar

About this event

The CDM 2015 regulations were published on 6 April and the Health and Safety Executive’s provided a six-month grace period to allow construction professionals time to adapt to the new rules and finish existing construction projects.

From 6 October, full implementation of the updated regulations is required on all new construction projects. Yet there are still parts of the industry which are not fully prepared.

Building on the success of the ICE Health & Safety Panel’s last webinar on 21 April 2015, where over 800 people tuned in, the Panel will once again host a free CDM webinar on 6 October 2015, Six Months On, looking back at the last six months and sharing experiences of fellow expert practitioners.
