Construction Phase Plan (CPP)

As a general builder do I need a CPP for any construction work I do?

Yes. If you are the only contractor or the principal contractor (PC), you must draw up a CPP.  However, it should be proportionate to the size and scale of the job.

A simple plan before the work starts is usually enough to show that you have thought about health and safety.

If you are a contractor working for a PC, it is the PC who must draw up the CPP.

To help you draw up a CPP for small-scale projects, go to the template CPP, or the CDM Wizard, a free-to-download smartphone app produced by the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB).
