MSAFE are pleased to announce a new free course on CDM & Domestic Clients.
CDM 2015 changed the scope of the previous Regulations to clearly incorporate domestic projects. We get a lot of questions and enquiries regarding how CDM applies to domestic projects and it is not always clear if those involved understand their legal position.
In summary, domestic client duties pass to other members of the team, effectively leaving the client with no duties unless they choose to project manage the work which could leave them with responsibilities under CDM Part 4. This usually leaves the only or lead designer in the position where they are Principal Designer by default with or without appointments for the role from the domestic client.
To assist we have provided designers with a summary of their position through this short training session. Useful for small and large practices alike, it gives a clear overview of the position of designers and principal designers on domestic projects.
We will be developing this portfolio of free bitesize courses to include further training on CDM for designers so keep in touch.
In the meantime, you can also undertake one of our existing online health and safety courses.
