The CDM Regulations were introduced to encourage the construction team to eliminate and reduce risks from the very outset of a project. The architectural fraternity is challenged with considering the health and safety implications likely to be associated with their design and take action to minimise foreseeable risks to those who must build, use and maintain a structure.
This seminar is aimed at providing architects with a clear, unambiguous method of both addressing their statutory duties under CDM 2007 within the practice, and embracing the opportunities to contribute to health and safety through design. The session will also ask how far architects need to go in reducing risk and eliminating hazards, given the other considerations an architect needs to manage, such as planning, aesthetics, budgets etc. Finally, we will discuss the latest status on the proposed new CDM Regulations which may be introduced as soon as 2014!
