What are the CDM Regulations?

The construction industry has always had a disproportionately high level of fatalities, major injuries and incidents of ill-health when compared with other industries. It was identified that there was a need to reduce risk by better co-ordination, management and co-operation between all parties involved in construction. This led to the introduction of the original Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 1994 (CDM94).

Concerns were raised from within the construction industry and the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) that CDM94 was not delivering the health and safety improvements that were expected of it. After extensive consultation The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007 (CDM 2007) came into effect in April 2007. These regulations revised and brought together the CDM94 Regulations and the Construction (Health Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1996 into a single package.

The CDM 2007 regulations were introduced with the aim of reducing the risk to health and safety of all those involved in a construction project, from the projects’ inception all the way through to project completion and beyond.
