Helping Construction Projects Succeed
Whatever your role in construction, CDM aims to improve health and safety in the industry by helping you to:
- sensibly plan the work so the risks involved are managed from start to finish
- have the right people for the right job at the right time
- cooperate and coordinate your work with others
- have the right information about the risks and how they are being managed
- communicate this information effectively to those who need to know
- consult and engage with workers about the risks and how they are being managed

F10 - Notification of construction project

Prepare the Health & Safety File
Prepare a Design Risk Register
Design risk management (DRM) is a means by which designers can demonstrate that their designs can be built, used, maintained and eventually demolished without negatively affecting the safety, health and wellbeing of those involved in the construction process or those who may be impacted by the structure.
Further Develop the Pre-construction Information
You need to compile and review the pre-construction information to check that the information provided is appropriate for supporting the construction phase. It should be specific to the project , highlight any significant health and safety issues and not include information that a principal contractor familiar with this type of work would be expected to know.
