CDM Designer Support Services

Safety and CDM

CDM Principal Designer Support

The Principal Designer (PD) has an important role in coordinating health and safety during the pre-construction design phase of a project. PDs are appointed by the client to undertake this coordination role. Although the PD has to be a designer, the specific role involves the coordination of a design and a design team, specifically focusing on health and safety and design risk management. The Health and Safety File must also be put in place by the PD in the early stages of a project.

Our support services take the strain off the PD, allowing them to concentrate on what they know best – design – secure in the knowledge that our services  guarantee that their obligations are met. Although we would not hold the duty, we would implement a design risk strategy and carry out all the liaison and coordination with the wider design team. We do this by integrating fully with the design team and working alongside all the designers to ensure they are adequately considering risks, potential issues and hazards that may impact on the construction, use and maintenance of the scheme.

We also capture evidence of the process being run through making it simple to demonstrate to the client that obligations are being met. We also take control of the format and contents of the health and safety file and will develop and collate information for inclusion throughout the PD’s appointment.
