In April 2015 the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 came into force, replacing the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007 and putting in place wide-ranging reforms in respect of workplace health and safety requirements. The new Regulations apply to almost all commercial and domestic construction sites meaning that, for anyone operating in the construction industry as a contractor or advisor, it is essential to be fully informed about the nature of these Regulations, their effect and the potential changes they make to working practices. The Regulatory and Compliance Solicitors at Wilford Smith have a comprehensive understanding of health and safety legislation across a wide range of sectors and can provide clear, straight-forward, jargon-free advice to ensure your full compliance with the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015.
The purpose of these Regulations is to ensure that anyone operating in the construction industry effectively plans for risks that may arise during the course of a project, that these risks are appropriately managed and that parties communicate effectively with one another to minimise risk. Individuals or businesses who breach these Regulations potentially risk costly fines being issued by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and, in particularly serious cases, criminal prosecutions. Our Regulatory and Compliance Lawyers can work to ensure that any incidents are managed appropriately and resolved quickly, as well as providing the highest quality representation should enforcement proceedings be forthcoming.
