CDM Regs to be reviewed

The HSE has announced it will be re-drafting the Construction (Design & Management) Regulations for reissue in 2014.

The Löfstedt report recommended that an ongoing review of CDM 2007 should consider a clearer expression of duties, a reduction in bureaucracy and suitable guidance for small projects.

A spokesperson for the HSE said: “While many aspects of the [CDM] package work very well, such as the technical standards required during construction work, other aspects continue to cause concern for the industry, including coordination of health and safety prior to construction work starting.

“HSE is looking at how these concerns can be addressed, so the CDM regulatory package is focused on maintaining and improving health and safety standards for construction workers across the industry.”
