Since 2015, Construction Design and Management (or CDM) regulations require all construction projects to establish health and safety measures before starting work.
A CDM consultancy can tick this box for you, but which is the right package for your project? Please read on to discover the best CDM consultancy package for you.
Why Do You Need A CDM Consultant?
A CDM consultant is sometimes known as a competent person or a health and safety SSIP. Competence is a vital part of any business strategy, but the amount of work depends on the business. For example, companies with heavy machinery will have the most to account for; additionally, environments with possible health and safety issues will also have the most work to do.
Making sure you meet the required standards can involve a considerable amount of steps such as:
- Checking construction plans
- The condition of the tools
- The state of the working areas
- The staffs training and qualifications for their roles
With CDM consultancy in London and other consultants stationed around the UK, this is where our CDM consultancy packages can help you. These are described in further detail down the page.
What is SSIP?
SSIP is officially known as ‘Safety Schemes in Procurement’. SSIP is a government recognised group that streamlines health and safety assessment services and removes many paperwork headaches.
CDM regulations created core criteria that contractors and consultants working in construction must adhere to. In addition, SSIP was created to unify these pre-existing health and safety qualification schemes.
SSIP was an excellent move to consolidate these disparate H&S schemes into one core qualification of mutual recognition.
All our certifications and competent persons are fully trained in all CDM and SSIP. These qualifications allow our CDM consultants to work with either CHAS, Constructionline, SafeContractor or and SSIP accreditation scheme you need.
