If you are responsible for a construction project of any size, you may be a Client as defined in the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015, and if so you are required to appoint a Principal Designer (PD) and a Principal Contractor (PC), if there is any more than one contractor working at any one time . If you are unsure, please contact us for free advice.
As a Principal Designer Franklin Safety Services would ensure that you understand and discharge your duties under the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015. The regulations define a process which ensures that consideration is given to the health and safety of:
Workers and others involved in a construction project
Those who might be affected by the work, eg members of the public
Those who will eventually use and maintain the building
By law, Clients must appoint a PD and PC as soon as possible (where necessary). Failure to do so, willl result in the Client taking on these roles legally. Before planning and design gets going so it is sensible to get advice on compliance at the earliest possible stage.
