Additional CDM Services now being offered
Over three years has now elapsed since the CDM Regulations 2015 were implemented and the key finding of a recent survey is that these new regulations have had limited impact on the construction industry and no apparent impact on its accident rate. The survey suggests that working methods established under CDM2007 and CDM1994 have proved remarkably resilient, and the principles of CDM2015 are struggling to take root. The UK construction industry, if nothing else; is resourceful and is dealing with this situation as best it can, even if not in the way that had originally been envisaged. To respond to the new landscape; Sanders Consulting is pleased to announce that it is broadening the scope of the health and safety based support services it provides.
This revised offer will be more inclusive in terms of the members of the Project Team as we will be providing advice and / or training in all aspects of CDM2015 to Clients, Designers, Principal Contractors and Contractors; in order that they are able to correctly discharge their duties under these regulations. This will be in addition to the more traditional Principal Designer Services that the practice has provided. These additional services include:
Client Advisor Services
The Client organisation may not have the time, resources or competence to fully understand and/or comply with their duties under CDM 2015. The fact that there is now more focus on the Client as head of a Project Team to set the standards of a project, has created a scenario with increased responsibility and workload backed by increased fines for health and safety breaches by the Client.
As a Client Advisor, Sanders Consulting will advise and assist the Client in carrying out their duties under CDM 2015, ensuring health and safety compliance throughout the duration of a project.
This role is not a Legal duty holder under CDM 2015 meaning the Client would be accountable for each Client duty, whichever organisation carries them out.
