Our CDM 2007: Safety Through Design event is a 2 hour training and updating session for busy architects and other designers. The sessions deliver high quality CPD in your own offices with mimimum disruption to the business. The content is grounded in my extensive experience as an HSE Construction Division Principal Inspector and I faciltate the events personally.

Before a design practice can be appointed commercial clients must take steps to ensure designer competence regarding the CDM Regulations 2007. In addition, the design practice may not accept a commission unless it is able to demonstrate such competence.

STOP PRESS: Contact us for details of training and support services available to CDM 2014 “Principal Designers”.

Please see event details below. Call me on 01462 612381 to discuss your needs.
