Practical guidance on complying with new regulatory duties. Reflects CDM 2007's key aims to embed health and safety consciousness into a whole project via the improved planning co-ordination of all involved, enabling earlier identification of risks, effective targeting of effort in priority areas and elimination of unnecessary bureaucracy.

Considers the spectrum of project aspects and roles embraced by CDM 2007's holistic approach, including clients, the CDM co-ordinator (notifiable projects only), designers, the principal contractor (notifiable projects only), other contractors and self-employed, competence issues and training needs, worker engagement and communication. Also documents the duty to keep a project health and safety file.
