As an architect or designer, are you asked to go beyond your role with regard to the inclusion of health, safety and buildability into your projects? Are you required to complete large risk assessment datbases covering all risks for clients and CDM-C's which have no apparent purpose or relevance to practicing architects or contractors or the project? Does the CDM-C on your project simply request your risk assessments and then tells you that they are unacceptable because you have only put control measures and not eliminated hazards and risks at source?
This seminar explores these dilemmas that have largely been created by our own industry, but also as a result of the legal profession's requirement for paperwork to prevent civil or criminal prosecutions.
You will leave this seminar with added confidence and the tools to provide proportionate and practicable CDM information that is:
- visually coordinated and easy to produce using project drawings that highlight only relevant hazards and significant risks to all participants in the process
- useful for clients, project managers and cost consultants to make allowances in the cost plan and create a level playing field for tenderers
- helpful for contractors at pricing stage to understand hidden, unusual and difficult to manage project-specific construction issues
- valuable to site managers and operatives when planning and executing the actual work on site
- suitable to demonstrate reduction of "significant risks" in designs "so far as reasonably practicable" (sfarp)
- appropriate to satisfy the HSE, lawyers and courts in the event of an accident.
The speaker will illustrate his presentation with a variety of examples covering small and large projects.
Speaker: Paul Bussey, Scott Brownrigg
