Construction

We are proud of our scrupulous record in the construction industry, delivery award-winning compliance services under the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations and interfacing with the project team throughout all phases of the project.

What is CDM?

The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations came into force on 6th April 2015.  They are the main set of regulations for the planning, coordination and management of health, safety and welfare on all construction projects.  CDM 2015 applies to all building and construction work and includes new build, refurbishment, extensions, conversions, repair, maintenance and demolition.

Construction activities, whether large or small, are often prone to accidents and disruptions. Good planning, coordination and management of the safety process throughout the construction project is essential, and so is compliance with the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 (CDM).

Safe Track Associates Limited provides a range of services to help companies and their contractors, ensuring that they are compliant with the complex requirements of the CDM Regulations.  The CDM Regulations place duties on Clients, Principal Designers, Designers, Principal Contractors, Contractors and Workers throughout every stage of a construction project.  We can help organisations ensure that these key personnel, whether employees, consultants or contractors, are not only competent to carry out the work, but are also kept informed as to their health and safety responsibilities, and that adequate resources for health and safety are allocated.

What services do we offer under CDM 2015?

We are competent Health and Safety Consultants who can undertake the role of Principal Designer, Principal Contractor and CDM Advisor (undertaking duties on behalf of the Client / Principal Designer / Principal Contractor).  We can also supply Site Management support where required.  Please see our

CDM Advisor:

As a Client, Principal Designer or Principal Contractor for a project, you may not have the time, company resources or competence to fully understand and comply with your duties under the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015.

In such cases, it may be appropriate to appoint a CDM advisor for your project to undertake the duties on your behalf. The CDM advisor will ensure you stay compliant and undertakes vital duties on your behalf with relation to paperwork, F10 submission and monitoring the management arrangements throughout the project.

  • The Fire Risk Assessment should cover all aspects of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005;
  • The Fire Risk Assessment should not be a tick-box form, it should elaborate on its findings and provide information and findings specific to your premises in every section.
  • The Fire Risk Assessment should involve your workers where possible e.g. does the Fire Risk Assessor ask your employees if they know where the Assembly Point is or how to raise the alarm in the event of a fire?
  • The Fire Risk Assessment should be all-encompassing and assess every aspect of your building, including basements, plant rooms, every door, roof space, ceiling voids, etc.
