Construction (Design and Management) Regulations (CDM) 2015: your essential guide to designer duties 

This seminar will demystify the regulations and help you understand how to apply health and safety design risk management on your projects.

  • other relevant construction legislation of which you should be aware
  • the CDM process timeline on projects
  • CDM 2015 Duty Holders and their obligations
  • CDM as a creative and collaborative process
