The CDM Regulations 2015

The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015

ETD’s CDM training will introduce you to everything you need to know about the CDM Regulations. Since launching in 2015, the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations have made the biggest changes to health and safety practices in history. The Regulations apply to all construction projects and cover the involvement of every Contractor. Everyone working under these Regulations needs to understand their duties and the importance of meeting these. 

CDM training is vital for all workers involved in any stage of a construction project. Whether you’re a Client, Principal Designer, Designer, Principal Contractor or Contractor, you’re legally obliged to comply with the Regulations. This is true regardless of whether you work on domestic or commercial projects. You can take this online CDM course to learn all the essentials in the legislation – from key definitions to applications and duty holder responsibilities – and ensure you’re sticking to the law.
