HSE second thoughts on revised CDM

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) have completed the consultation exercise on their proposed amendments to the regulatory framework for construction, a process we reported in the last edition of Safety News.

One of the proposals was to supply sector-specific guidance instead of an Approved Code of Practice to support the forthcoming Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015. After reviewing responses received, HSE has retracted this plan and will retain an ACOP. Of the 1,213 responses they received, less than 400 agreed with the withdrawal idea.
