The key aim is to integrate health and safety into the management of the project and to encourage everyone involved to work together to:
Improve the planning and management of projects from the very start;
Identify risks early on so that they can be eliminated or reduced at the design or planning stage and the remaining risks can be properly managed;
Target effort where it can do the most good in terms of health and safety; and
Discourage unnecessary bureaucracy.
Therefore this course is ideal for Managers and Supervisors being part of a CDM project. It is also useful for employers to understand the regulations as non-notifiable works such as work on existing services still falls under the CDM regulations.
