HSE and WWT Event provides information about CDM 2007
A Working Well Together (WWT) Designer Awareness Day is being held in Essex on 14th November 2013 at the Marconi Social Club, Beehive Lane, Chelmsford, Essex, CM2 9RX. WWT is the cross-industry partnership with the aim of improving standards of health and safety in the construction industry.
HSE Construction Principal Inspector Dominic Elliss says:
“Designers have a big influence on all of these factors. Early consideration of health and safety issues can resolve many of the problems that contractors face. We all know that changes cropping up during the construction phase can be expensive. The cost of failure to plan effectively is reflected in the high levels of injury and ill-health amongst our workforce.
There is widespread concern that designers could do more to address, mitigate or eliminate risk. Some designers are not fully aware of what they need to do. Too many people with design responsibilities are not up to speed on health and safety and, as a result, fail to fully understand how to meet the standards expected of them. Designers have a vital role in improving the performance of the industry, but they need to be more proactive.”
The cost of this event is £25 per delegate and the aim is to raise awareness of designers’ responsibilities under the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007 (CDM 2007). The agenda includes:
