Health and Safety on your Construction Project

At JCJ Construction Health and Safety is our number one priority. The revision of construction regulations on 6 April 2015 introduced the requirements for all future domestic and non-commercial construction projects to comply with the requirements of the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 (CDM 2015).

How does CDM 2015 work in practice?

CDM 2015 has six key elements, each with its own CDM Industry Guidance, these guidance documents are for: Clients, Principal Designers, Designers, Principal Contractors and Workers.

A member of our CDM project management team will work closely with you through all stages of project development thereby reassuring you at every construction stage that your project is designed and operated within our “Safe Person Safe Project” culture.

Our Health and Safety and CDM protocols mean that your construction project is undertaken safely, with due attention to you, your neighbours and the surrounding community. Our project safety inspection protocols ensure that all construction hazards and risks are kept as low as reasonably practicable (ALARP), enforcing our “Safe Person Safe Project” culture.

At every stage of your construction project CDM 2015 and its accompanying health and safety legislation requires the completion of important paperwork. We will take care of this for you and our operational Project Managers and Chartered Health and Safety advisors will ensure that all documents are completed professionally to ensure compliance with CDM 2015 regulations and guidance requirements.

Our Chartered Health and Safety and CDM Advisors keep us up to date with all changes to Health and Safety, Fire Safety and Construction Regulations thereby safeguarding our “Safe Person Safe Project” culture and ensuring you of our compliance with regulations, legislations and industry best practices at all time.

Your Role and Responsibility as the Client:

As the Client of a construction project, CDM 2015 places a responsibility on you to:

“Ensure that the construction project is set up so that it is carried out from start to finish in a way that adequately controls the risks to the health and safety of those who may be affected”,

This text extract is from CDM 2015 Industry Guidance for Clients (HSE CDM/1).

We work closely with Designers, Architects and our Health and Safety and CDM Advisors to ensure that as the Client your responsibilities and duty of care are properly fulfilled thereby, ensuring that your project is compliant with CDM 2015 and its associated legislation and industry best practices.

If you have any questions, queries or concerns regarding CDM 2015, your role and responsibilities as client or, any part of the process please give us a call on 01273 857 886 or email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
