Construction Design and Management regulations safety survey

Louise Smyth

Construction Design and Management (CDM) safety specialist, HFL:CD  is assessing exactly how well those working in the process engineering sector understand the new CDM regulations which came into force in 2015.

The company, which was established in direct response to the regulations changes last year, is conducting the pioneering study to gain valuable insights into how well those working in the process industries understand their obligations when it comes to CDM. The regulations now place accountability for health, safety and welfare on the individual responsible for undertaking a construction or engineering projects.

HFL:CDM has rapidly made a name for itself as one of the  authorities for helping process companies navigate important changes to health and safety regulations. The business has secured a number of contracts with process clients and now has 10 full time employees.

The study has been designed to gauge just what businesses know about the regulations, responsibilities and the possible implications of not appointing a Principal Designer to undertake CDM duties and oversee project health and safety.

Ian Dunkley, Project Director at Haden Freeman Group said, “HFL:CDM is focused on ensuring that the individuals working in the process industry are clearly aware of the new CDM regulations and the implications these can have for their projects. We think very few people are actually aware of how serious the implication of not following these regulations really are.”

“The study will help us to build up an accurate picture of just what those in the sector know about the regulations, as well as their own responsibilities, and the work which still needs to be done with our health and safety partners to help educate those working in the industry.”
