Construction Activities

Everyone controlling construction site work has health and safety responsibilities. Checking that working conditions are healthy and safe before work begins, and ensuring that the proposed work is not going to put others at risk, require planning and organisation. This applies whatever the size of the site.

The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007 (CDM) can help you to:

  • improve health and safety in your industry
  • have the right people for the right job at the right time to manage the risks on site
  • focus on effective planning and manage the risk - not the paperwork

Notifiable construction work
If you think you are undertaking a construction project that will last more than 30 days or involve more than 500 person days you must submit a F10 notification form via the Health and Safety Executive website
