On 6 April 2015, the CDM Regulations are changing. The Changes are likely to affect the majority of UK businesses, who at one time or another will be involved in the very broad definition of “construction” works – whether by procuring, overseeing, inputting or carrying out those works.
Activities as wide-ranging as refurbishment of offices, outage and maintenance works, cleaning, site clearance and demolition are covered by the new CDM Regulations. The new Regulations will place legal duties, enforceable under criminal law, on all parties involved with construction works, from the inception of a project all the way through to completion.
Up to 85% of businesses affected by the new law do not consider themselves to be “construction businesses”. Many may not even know that the new CDM Regulations apply to them. Our webinar below will talk you through the key changes.
