To ensure chartered architects are reaching a high standard of health and safety knowledge and the life safety of building users, the RIBA has introduced an online test based on a comprehensive curriculum to test for competency. This guide is designed to improve industry understanding of issues in accordance with CDM Regulations and prepare architects for the health and safety test. It provides practitioners with the required knowledge regarding site safety, hazards and design risk management to discharge their professional services and legal duties competently and safely.

The 2nd edition features updates to the content relating to design risk management and statute that reflects the changes enacted under the Building Safety Act 2022 and amendments to the Building Regulations 2010, introduced in 2023. The new content includes a new chapter with guidance on designer's duties and competence requirements under Part 2A of the Building Regulations. This features a review of the relationship between these and the dutyholder regime under the CDM Regulations and practical examples of how designers/architects might discharge their duties in accordance with the requirements of the regulations.

Essential guidance for improving professional standards and ensuring safety among architects. Companion book for architects preparing for the RIBA health and safety test. Features over 80 high-quality original illustrations, highlighting safety risks and best practice.
