CDM Regulations 2015

Under CDM 2015, every construction project needs a Construction Phase plan. Somebody needs to be named in the plan as the person or organisation in overall control of the job, regardless of the number of trades/contractors/sub-contractors working on the job. That somebody has a duty under CDM 2015 as the Principal Contractor to plan and organise the work, and work together with the others in the project to ensure health and safety standards are maintained. The regulations now apply to domestic work e.g. installing a kitchen building an extension structural refurbishment roofing work

Self Employed and H&S

So, from 1 October 2015, if you are self-employed and your work activity poses no potential risk to the health and safety of other workers or members of the public, then health and safety law will not apply to you. It’s estimated that health and safety law will no longer apply to 1.7 million self-employed people like novelists, journalists, graphic designers, accountants, , financial advisors and dress- makers, where their work does not pose a risk to the health and safety of others.
