Construction (Design and Management) regulations came into force on 6 April 2015. They set out what people involved in construction work need to do to protect themselves from harm and anyone the work affects.

The Regulations describe:

  • the law that applies to the whole construction process on all construction projects, from concept to completion
  • what each duty holder must or should do to comply with the law to ensure projects are carried out in a way that secures health and safety

Useful details are available on the HSE website
