CDM2015 was introduced on the 6th of April 2015 and as of 6th of October 2015 it is now a requirement for clients to appoint a Principal Contractor and Principal Designer for projects involving more than one contractor. This now applies to domestic projects too in line with the European Directive. A project is also notifiable to the HSE if it involves more than 500 person days or involves more than 20 persons on site within a 30 day period. 


LBES Edinburgh Principal Designer can help clients review their projects to ensure compliance with CDM2015. Our Principal Designer advisor is an Certified 'CMaPS' CDM2015 NOS assessed member of the Association for Project Safety and Technical 'TechIOSH' member of the Institution for Occupational Safety and Health and would be only too happy to discuss potential projects.
