The new 2007 CDM Regulations are now in force and all developers considering construction projects should be apppointing a CDM co-ordinator at the earliest opportunity to avoid future issues. A client is deemed to have to undertake this role if the appointment is not made at the outset and many of course will not be familiar with such responsibilities.
Clients are therefore much more liable than ever before and any projects do need to be properly managed to avoid conflict with the Health & Safety Commission.
Appoint CDM co-ordinator early!!
