Health and Safety
We offer advice on all matters relating to the Health and Safety at Work Acts and the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 in relation to all types of building contracts.
From 6 April 2015 significant changes have been introduced in respect of the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015. These now place the onus in respect of all health and safety matters relating to the design and development and the subsequent management of the construction works with the Principle Designer, removing the position of a CDM Coordinator.
Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 recently replaced the Fire Precautions Act 1971, which required certain types of buildings to hold a fire certificate. In conjunction with the Fire Precautions (Workplace) Regulations 1999 and the Management of Health and Safety in the Workplace Regulations 1999 fire risk assessments are now required to be carried out to buildings to assess whether they comply with the latest regulations.
Our services include the following:
- Preparation of pre-tender health and safety plans
- Acting as Principle Designer vetting contractors health and safety plans
- Maintaining health and safety regulations on site
