Construction Phase Health and Safety Plans & Design Reviews
Supporting the client in the design of mobile telecom sites to ensure high standards of safety and report back on issues. We provide clients with independent assessments of contractor CPP to ensure safe planning and management reviews of the health and safety risks with arrangements that are specific to the project.
What is the Construction Phase Health and Safety Plan?
A Construction Phase Plan is a key document that details the health and safety risks associated with the construction phase of the project and the control measures that will be implemented to minimise risks or where possible, eliminate them.
Once drawn up, the document should help communicate significant risks, site rules and health and safety arrangements to other people involved in the construction phase.
When is a Construction Phase Plan Required?
Under the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 (CDM 2015) a construction phase plan is required for every construction project regardless of the industry, scale, and duration of work. Why is that important? Well, these regs now do include many activities that could be relevant to your work in Telecoms.
At first glance it might not be clear, but it’s important to understand how the CDM Regs apply to the Telecoms industry.
We’ve written a blog on Do the CDM Regulations Apply to Telecoms, so you can feel confident applying them to your work.
