Client CDM Guidance

PDF Print



If you are starting to plan your path maintenance project this guidance is for you. It describes and gives examples of 10 main responsibilities that you need to carry out on path maintenance projects. It also has checklists to help you.

One of the important things to think about at the start of your project is health and safety. If your project will involve the use of tools, machinery, and materials to repair, improve, or upgrade a path, the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 (CDM 2015) will affect your project.

If you follow the good practice set out in this guidance, you will do enough to meet your responsibilities as a client under CDM 2015. By doing so, you will also be making sure that the manner in which the path maintenance works are carried out is safe and protects the health of everyone affected, as well as the people using the path.
