These include the obligation to ensure that both a principal designer and principal contractor are appointed where more than one contractor will be working on the project, regardless of the project's size, duration or risk.
CDM duty holders understand how crucial their responsibility is in implementing the requirements of the new regulations, and by virtue of that comprehension, how vulnerable they are -- both individually and corporately.
The role of principal designer within CDM 2015 has a requirement to:
• Be appointed by the client in writing
• Be a member of the design team
• Be able to control and co-ordinate the health and safety aspects of the design process
• Have the necessary skills, knowledge, experience to undertake the role and process
In order to achieve this, the principal designer needs to co-ordinate the design(s) with regard to health and safety by monitoring the identification of hazards and the elimination or mitigation of residual risk.
The focus should be a deliverable that meets the client's brief, which is tailored to the requirements of the project and achieves statutory compliance with:
• The CDM Regulations
• Health and safety legislation
• Building Regulations
• Fire legislation
Access for maintenance should be a primary focus during design and not left for the client or FM team to manage post construction. The planning and delivery of a successful project is achieved by professionals who have suitable and sufficient skills, knowledge and experience to deliver their scope of work. The right training can provide those preparing to take on the principal designer role with an insight into how to discharge the required duties.
At Faithful+Gould, we believe there is a gap in available training linking the requirements of the principal designer to manage and monitor the design process with the subsequent requirements of the designers to identify hazards and mitigate risks to the project. It is not possible to successfully deliver one without an understanding of the other.
Faithful+Gould have been working closely with IOSH to develop a course that will provide support, guidance and practical skills regarding the role of the principal designer and the design risk management process.
June 2017 will see the launch of the first IOSH-accredited CDM 2015 course -- Principal Designer and Design Risk Management. It will provide delegates with appropriate information on the legal requirements of the Construction (Design & Management) Regulations 2015, covering the duties of the principal designer and the requirements to suitably discharge the role.
Topics covered will include:
• What legislation requires
• HSE expectations - As Low as Reasonably Practicable (ALaRP)
• So Far as Reasonably Practicable (SFaRP)
• CDM 2015 duty holders
• Understanding and practicing design risk management
• Occupational health in design
• Incorporating health and safety through BIM
The first course will be held on 5-7 June at Kents Hill Park in Milton Keynes. We will deliver an Interactive & Collaborative Learning Experience and you will have access to two IOSH accredited facilitators.
