CDM 2007 - Workplace “in-use” guidance for designers (C663)

The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007 (known as CDM2007) affect all construction work of any significance. The Regulations place duties upon all designers and this guide is designed to assist in fulfilling those duties with respect to Construction Work. CDM2007 builds upon earlier health and safety legislation by imposing a framework of duties so that all the parties to a construction project must consider health and safety. The Regulations have an Approved Code of Practice L144 (known as the ACoP) titled Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007, which has legal status and must be referred to alongside CDM2007.

This guide addresses workplace in-use' hazards; there is a companion CIRIA guide C662 which addresses construction hazards.

Key words: health and safety, construction management, risk and value management.
