If you are doing or having construction and building work carried out, you will have health and safety responsibilities to consider before starting work.

If you are doing or having construction and building work carried out, you will have health and safety responsibilities to consider before starting work: Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007

  • clients, designers, contractors and others involved with construction work all have duties under the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007 (CDM 2007)
  • under CDM 2007, certain construction work must be notified to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE)

If you are having construction work done on your own home, or on the home of a family member, as a domestic client you do not have to notify the work to HSE and you will not have duties under CDM 2007 — although those doing the work on your behalf (such as designers or contractors) will.

If you are having construction work done as part of a trade or business, for example as a landlord or a developer, it may be notifiable and you will also have other duties as a client under CDM 2007.
