The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has released the outcome of its consultation on proposals to revise the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007.
The aim of the consultation was to reduce the bureaucratic approach taken by industry under the current CDM Regulations and the HSE received over 1,400 responses, which is amongst the highest of any consultation undertaken by HSE.
NAS submitted a response on behalf of its members, which highlighted the importance of communicating the revised Regulations and new associated guidance in order to deliver real change in the industry. Overall the outcome of the consultation reflects the NSCC response, including keeping an Approved Code of Practice (ACOP) for the new Regulations which HSE had originally proposed to replace with guidance.
NAS members can receive free advice on the CDM Regulations via the NAS Health and Safety Helpline provided NAS House.
