Do I have organisational capabilities?

We assist you with the arrangements to comply with CDM Reg 8.

The regulation requires that a designer (including a principal designer) or contractor (including a principal contractor) appointed to work on a project must have the skills, knowledge and experience.

And, if they are an organisation, the organisational capability, necessary to fulfil the role that they are appointed to undertake, in a manner that secures the health and safety of any person affected by the project.

We have international experience and speak your language.


Since the latest amendment of CDM Regulations in 2015, the roles of Client and the new Principal Designer require tight-grip management and taking accountabilities.

The project teams must work in sync to the extent that the actions or inactions of the one may significantly impact the other duty-holders, affecting the overall performance of Client and PD.

We have extensive experience in working with organisations and people who are prepared to change for the better and deliver the role diligently.

We assist you in the journey to compliance, from the strategy to the organisation’s mentoring, individual coaching and training, and monitoring of the resulting performance to enable you to have better visibility of the bigger picture.

We will support you through the development of a Design Phase (H&S) Plan. Though this is not a legal requirement under CDM, the Principal Designer must prepare a Design Phase Plan when the project follows the BIM standard.

It will set out and communicate how the organisation as Principal Designer plans, manages and monitors the pre-construction phase and coordinates matters relating to health and safety during the pre-construction phase.

This plan is to ensure that, so far as is reasonably practicable, the project is carried out without risks to health or safety.

Likewise, we assist the CDM Client in making suitable arrangements for managing a project, including the allocation of sufficient time and other resources.

As CDM Client, you are scoped with the allocation of sufficient time, because the Client is in control of the overall resources and therefore retains a high degree of control over the project lifecycle.

The Client has a significant influence over the way a project is procured and managed.

Regardless of the size of the project, the Client has contractual control, engages designers and contractors, make appointments and determines the money, time and other resources available.

The CDM Client must lead CDM, and we will support your success.

We assist you during the application of corporate membership to the professional institutions like IOSH, APS or IISRM.

We assist you with the facilitation of group sessions where communication is ineffective. Restoring the channels and proposed changes is essential to resolve ongoing issues.
