The Principal Contractor

What we can do for you...

Though you remain the dutyholder, you can require our CDM advice and support with:

  • Support to PC role
  • H&S/CDM training
  • Construction Phase Plan (CPP) checks
  • Health and Safety File information

We can tailor other services to suit the specific requirements of your project. Request a brochure for more details!!

If a Principal Designer had to be appointed, a Principal Contractor is required too, and vice-versa !

The Contractor is anyone who directly employs or engages construction workers or manages construction.

A principal contractor is the organisation or person that coordinates the work of the construction phase of a project involving more than one contractor, so it is carried out in a way that secures health and safety.

The Principal Contractor is appointed by the client and must possess the skills, knowledge, and experience, and (if an organisation) the organisational capability to carry out their role effectively given the scale and complexity of the project and the nature of the H&S risks involved. Contact us for a brochure and services available.

If you are in a Design and Build commitment, you may want taking a look at our Designer and Principal Designer services too...


Why to use a registered professional?

If you are required to comply with health and safety legislation, you want peace of mind that the person you engage for advice will assist you diligently in achieving compliance. The professional institutions check the skills, knowledge and experience of the health and safety professionals before granting a membership status and require members to follow a Continual Professional Development plan to ensure their knowledge is up to date.
