Construction (design and management) regulations 2007

Overview

View pages in this section

During the planning of any building refurbishment or new construction there is an opportunity to ensure that any hazards to end users of a building can be designed out at the planning stage.

The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007 put responsibilities on designers, developers and clients to ensure a project is safe during construction or refurbishment.  Furthermore those responsibilities extend to certain requirements to ensure the building is safe in use by the end user.

In many cases Rossendale BC will enforce health and safety in the finished building and therefore we would hope to work with duty holders to identify at the design stage any potential issues for the finished project.

You should ensure that you take in to consideration the details in INDG411 - A quick guide for clients on the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007. You can also read details on the specific items relating to the Workplace (Health, Safety & welfare) Regulations 1992 detailed on the next page.
