What is it about?

This Scottish Access Technical Information Network (SATIN) training course will give you an overview of the role and legal duties of the Client* under the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 (CDM 2015).  CDM 2015 is the main set of regulations covering the management of health and safety and welfare on all construction projects.  You are not expected to do the path construction or maintenance work yourself, but you do have considerable influence over how the work is carried out by others on your project.  You are ultimately responsible for your project and need to decide who will carry out the work.  The decisions you make will have an effect on the health and safety and welfare of everyone carrying out the work, as well as others affected by it like the public.

*Under the CDM 2015 Regulations, Client is an organisation or individual for whom construction work is carried out in connection with a business or other undertaking, whether for profit or not.

What will you gain from attending?

Attending this course will ensure you are aware of the Clients role and legal responsibilities so you know what you have to do to comply with the CDM 2015 Regulations.

By the end of the course, you will understand:

•    The legal requirements of the Client and CDM 2015 Regulations; and

•    The 10 main legal responsibilities of the Client under the CDM 2015 Regulations…

1.    Appointing the right people at the right time into your project team

2.    Notifying your path construction or maintenance project

3.    Making sure arrangements are in place for managing and organising your project

4.    Allowing enough time for each stage of your project to be carried out properly

5.    Providing information to your designer and contractor

6.    Communicating with your designer and contractor

7.    Making sure adequate welfare facilities on site

8.    Making sure a construction phase plan is prepared and in place on site

9.    Keeping the health and safety file, and

10.    Protecting members of the public.

Who is it for?

Not to be missed if you take on the role of a Client delivering small, medium or large scale path construction or maintenance projects, anywhere in Scotland.  Designers and contractors, who design and build outdoor access and active travel infrastructure on behalf of their Clients, will find this course useful as well.  They need to know of and be satisfied that their Clients are aware of the Clients’ role and legal duties under the CDM 2015 Regulations.
