Safety specialist launches CDM awareness survey for construction sector

Construction Design and Management (CDM) safety specialist HFL:CDM, part of the Haden Freeman Engineering Group, is assessing how well those working in the engineering and construction sectors 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 engineering and construction 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.

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 engineering and construction industries 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.”
