Construction Projects (CDM Regs)

Construction Projects (CDM Regs)

A wide range of activities undertaken by contractors on Scout owned or managed premises, come under the Construction (Design & Management) Regulations 2015. If you pay others to undertake construction, alteration, conversion, installation of fixed appliances, fitting out, commissioning, renovation, repair, upkeep, redecoration or other maintenance, for example, the Scout unit will have legal responsibilities as the commercial client. Those designing the work and undertaking the work will also have legal responsibilities. For some construction work (work lasting longer than 30 days with more than 20 workers working at the same time, or, involving 500 person days of work), you need to notify HSE of the project as soon as possible before construction work starts.

The HSE’s summary of responsibilities is a full list of activities covered by Regulations, and a more complete guide to the requirements. Both documents may be freely downloaded.
