Who should read this?
Designers wanting to develop their knowledge of safety and hazards. This is a companion guide to the CIRIA guide 'CDM 2007 - Construction work sector guidance for designers', which addresses construction hazards.
The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007 (known as CDM 2007) affect all construction work of any significance in the UK. The Regulations place duties upon all designers and this guide is designed to assist in fulfilling those duties with respect to Construction Work.
CDM 2007 builds upon earlier health and safety legislation by imposing a framework of duties so that all the parties to a construction project must consider health and safety and best practice standards. The Regulations have an Approved Code of Practice L144 (known as the ACoP) titled Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007, which has legal status and must be referred to alongside CDM 2007.
This 203-page book addresses workplace 'in-use' hazards; there is a companion CIRIA guide (CDM 2007 - Construction work sector guidance for designers) which addresses construction hazards.
This book covers:
- Introduction to CDM 2007
- Workplace regulations
- Explains a range of hazards
- Information on typical workplaces
