What is a CDM Coordinator?

Since the introduction of the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007, there has been a requirement by law to appoint a CDM Coordinator to notify the HSE via an F10 notification form on non-domestic construction projects that are planned to last longer than 30 days or 500 person days of work. See more about whether your project is notifiable here


A CDM (Construction Design and Management) Coordinator is a qualified Health and Safety whose role is to advise the Client on health and safety issues during the design and planning phases of construction work and is someone who has and knowledge and experience of planning, management, construction, and communications.


Our professional CDM Coordinators understand the design and management roles, will advise you on the competence of the duty holders, prepare the project Health and Safety paperwork and make the required notification to the HSE.


 CDM Coordinators bring together designers, construction teams and Health & Safety advisors prior to commencement of building and are responsible for reviewing design changes throughout construction.


A CDM Coordinator should be appointed as early in the design and planning process as practicable.


CDM Regulations 2007

CDM 2007 is essentially a set of regulations and associated Approved Code of Practice that set out the conditions by which a project must be planned, designed and managed from first conception through to lifetime management of the completed structure(s) including information for future works, maintenance and demolition.


The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007 apply to all construction projects no matter how big or small. Under these regulations, construction projects may become notifiable, in which case additional duties and responsibilities apply. The regulations apply not only to construction work itself, but also to the planning, design and management of the work.


The purpose of the CDM regulations is to focus the attention of the whole team on the health and safety aspects of the project, to improve the planning and management of projects, to facilitate the early identification of hazards, and to place responsibilities and efforts where they can most benefit health and safety. The overall aim is to integrate health and safety throughout the management structure and to encourage everyone involved in the project to work together.
