Therefore construction activities can present a high risk of death and injury to workers and those around the site.
But it needn't be so.
If you are responsible for any construction project there are legally mandated core requirements for having the necessary skills, knowledge and training to ensure that all works are carried out safely and competently.
Responsibility is not the sole preserve of the Principal contractor – whether you are the Client, Designer, Architect or other interested party the Construction, Design and Management Regulations 2015 stipulate a broad range of objectives and outcomes that must be met to minimise the risk of accidents and injury from project conception to completion and beyond.
Are you worried that you may not meet these strict standards?
