What is a competent person

What Does CDM Mean?

The CDM (Construction Design and Management Regulations 2015) is a compulsory set of regulations that govern construction projects in the UK. CDM regulations apply to both commercial and domestic building projects, whatever the size and scale. Whether you are commissioning a structural renovation job for your home, or you are representing a company that is working on a large commercial fit-out, you must comply with CDM 2015.

What is a CDM Principal Designer?

The 2015 CDM regulations introduced the duty-holder role of Principal Designer as a way to assign someone to manage, monitor, plan and coordinate the health and safety processes required in the pre-construction phase.

The HSE (Health and Safety Executive) describes the Principal Designer as either an individual or an organisation that must demonstrate the required knowledge, skills and experience (and organisational capacity if a company) to manage health and safety during the pre-construction phase.
