The Designers CDM Compliance Kit has been prepared to assist both Principal Designers and Designers (such as Architects, Engineers, Technicians, Specifiers, Surveyors etc.) in fulfilling their duties under the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations.
The Designers CDM Compliance Kit helps to assist and prompt both Principal Designers and Designers to:
- Manage the CDM process from concept/feasibility through detailed design and the tender stage as well as the construction and eventual handover of the structure/facility
- Provides tools to help ensure that clients are made fully aware of their respective duties under CDM 2015

- Provide useable information about the health and safety risks, and hazards associated with their designs t those who may need it

- Includes a fully integrated Design Risk Assessment module for producing and recording project specific Risk Assessments
- Carry out checks and assessments of other Duty Holders including Designers, Principal Contractors and Contractors
- Produce CDM Design Safety Reviews and Design Safety Statements

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) have made various statements about designers and the lack of understanding and appreciation of the role they should play in the management and control of health and safety under CDM. The hope is that CDM 2015 will help to overcome such issues and with the assistance of the Designers CDM Compliance Kit, designers can produce quality, meaningful CDM documentation whilst also gaining a thorough understanding of the requirements placed upon them under the revised CDM 2015 Regulations.
The Designers CDM Compliance Kit can help designers to not only understand their CDM role and duties, but also demonstrate how they have complied with the CDM regulations whilst providing standard documents and templates to assist not only with CDM but also with the entire design safety process.
All the information is supplied in a PDF that will be sent to you electronically. This means that you will have instant access to your Contractors CDM Compliance Kit, and you will be able to refer to it whenever you need to so you are not restricted to using your kit for just one project.
