NEW SITE SAFETY RULES FOR INSTALLATION PROJECTS



DELTA NEU has welcomed recent changes to Construction and Design Management (CDM) regulations regarding safety on site during equipment installation projects.

Following an industry-wide consultation process by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), new CDM regulations were introduced in April 2015. These regulations continue to form the basis of our health and safety framework for equipment installations on site at client facilities.

DELTA NEU Managing Director Peter Dowell says: “In my opinion, the changes have clarified and simplified what was previously considered a complex regulatory framework for the construction industry. This will help to increase health and safety compliance in general and reduce the risk of unnecessary costs being incurred during equipment installation projects.”

The new CDM regulations define the roles of key personnel, including the Project Designer, Principal Contractor and Contractor. The responsibilities of each party in managing health and safety requirements during the construction phase are clearly set out.

Peter Dowell says: “Although the reporting structure differs under the new regulations, our role is largely unchanged in terms of completing risk assessments, method statements and managing the construction team on site.”

He adds: “We have always approached every installation project with an overriding commitment to meeting CDM health and safety objectives and this will continue to be our focus.”
