A Clients Guide to Health and Safety for a Construction Project is a fully up-to-date and straightforward guide which aims to assist construction clients in understanding the health and safety duties imposed upon them by the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007 and to help ensure that a project is safe to build, use and maintain. It cuts through the complicated legislation to reveal the difference between non-notifiable and notifiable projects, the role of the CDM Co-ordinator, how to determine the competence of other duty-holders, what may expected from those working within a design team, and any legal liabilities to be aware of. Aimed at the construction client and particularly those who may be new to the role, the guide offers a quick and easy overview of everything you need to stay on the right side of the Regulations - designed to ensure the health and safety of the project over its life and should lead to a successful project delivered on time and on budget.
