What is CDM

Keeping safety in mind

The Construction (Design & Management) Regulations (CDM) when first introduced in March 1995, were intended to ensure that health and safety issues are properly considered during a projects development so that the risk of harm to those who have to build, use and maintain the structure is reduced.

Since CDM’94, the Regulations have gone through two revisions with the current version being CDM’15, coming into force on 6th April 2015.
