RR263 - Integrated gateways: planning out health & safety risk

Describes an investigation into the integration of health and safety planning within construction project management.

It was widely believed that implementation of the CDM Regulations had lead to a bureaucracy, parallel to, but detached from, normal project management practice and adding little value to the management of construction projects. The research team have engaged in extensive industry consultation, including several group meetings and numerous interviews with experienced practitioners. This has resulted in the development of an integrated Gateway model for construction projects, incorporating the management of health and safety risk. Supporting the model are several tools, designed to be used as levers for the detailed requirements of project planning, communication and control.
