F10 Notification Calculator: CDM 2015

f10 notification calculator

Welcome to our F10 Notification Calculator, an essential tool for anyone working in the construction industry in the United Kingdom.

If you are a client or principal contractor, you have a legal obligation to notify the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) before starting construction work on a project that lasts longer than 30 working days and has more than 20 workers working simultaneously at any point in the project or where the construction work is expected to exceed 500 person days.

Our F10 Notification Calculator is a simple, user-friendly tool designed to help you determine whether your construction project requires notification to the HSE.

By inputting some basic information about your project, you can quickly and easily calculate the total number of person days and whether your project is notifiable under the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015.

In this guide, we will walk you through the features of our F10 Notification Calculator, as well as the legal requirements surrounding F10 Notification.

How to Use the F10 Notification Calculator

Using an F10 Notification Calculator is a simple and straightforward process. Here are the basic steps to follow:

  1. Navigate to the F10 Notification Calculator below.
  2. Enter the expected duration of your project in days.
  3. Enter the maximum number of workers who will be on site at any given time.
  4. The calculator will then display the total number of person days for your project.
  5. The calculator will then determine whether your project meets the threshold for notification to the HSE.
  6. If your project is notifiable, the calculator will prompt you to complete and submit an F10 Notification Form to the HSE.

It is important to note that the F10 Notification Calculator is only a tool and cannot replace a thorough assessment of your project’s health and safety risks. You should still conduct a comprehensive risk assessment and take appropriate steps to manage any hazards identified.

Additionally, the F10 Notification Calculator is not a substitute for legal advice. If you are unsure whether your project requires notification, you should seek professional advice from our qualified legal experts.

F10 Notification Calculator

To find out if your project needs to be notified under CDM 2015, enter the project duration in days (each part day worked counts as a day) and the number of people you expect to have on site.

Person days

Enter your project details

No, your project is not notifiable.

Yes, your project needs to be notified.




If the number of person days exceeds 500 then the project is notifiable under CDM 2015 (or where you have over 20 workers on your project at any one time and the project lasts over 30 days).

Remember! All CDM duties apply even if your project is not notifiable.

No! Your project is not notifiable as it is under 500 person days and under 30 days. Remember, all other CDM duties still apply.

It does not look like your project is notifiable. However, if your project will exceed 20 workers at any time it will need to be notified.

Yes! Your project is notifiable as it is likely to exceed 500 person days.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is an F10 Notification Calculator?

An F10 Notification Calculator is an online tool designed to help construction project owners determine whether their project is notifiable to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) under the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015. The calculator takes into account the project duration and the number of people working on the project to determine whether the project meets the criteria for notifiability. The tool can save time and help project owners avoid potential fines by ensuring they are compliant with the legal requirements for construction projects.

How accurate is the F10 Notification Calculator?

The accuracy of an F10 Notification Calculator depends on the information entered into it. If the project duration and number of people working on the project are accurately entered, then the calculator should provide an accurate result. However, it is important to note that the calculator is only a tool and cannot replace the professional judgment of a competent person. It is recommended that the results of the calculator be reviewed by a qualified professional to ensure accuracy and compliance with legal requirements.

How does the F10 Notification Calculator determine if a project is notifiable?

The F10 Notification Calculator determines if a project is notifiable based on the criteria set out in the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015. Specifically, the calculator takes into account the project duration and the number of people working on the project. If the project is expected to last longer than 30 working days and have more than 20 workers working simultaneously at any point in the project, or if the project is expected to exceed 500 person-days of work, then it is likely to be notifiable to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and the client will need to submit an F10 Notification. The calculator uses these criteria to provide a quick and easy determination of whether a project is notifiable or not.

What information do I need to use the F10 Notification Calculator?

To use the F10 Notification Calculator, you will need to have an estimate of the project duration and the number of workers who will be involved in the project. The project duration refers to the total number of working days that the project is expected to take, while the number of workers refers to the maximum number of workers who will be working on the project at any one time. With this information, the F10 Notification Calculator will be able to determine whether the project is notifiable or not, and provide you with the number of person-days worked.

Is the F10 Notification Calculator free to use?

Yes, the F10 Notification Calculator is free to use. You do not need to pay any fees or sign up for any subscriptions to use the tool. It is available online and accessible to anyone who needs to check whether their project is notifiable under the CDM regulations.

Who can use the F10 Notification Calculator?

Anyone who is involved in construction work in the United Kingdom and needs to determine whether their project is notifiable under the CDM regulations can use the F10 Notification Calculator. This includes clients, contractors, and designers, as well as anyone else involved in the planning or execution of a construction project. The tool is designed to be user-friendly and accessible to anyone who needs to use it, regardless of their level of expertise or experience with construction regulations.

Can I save the results of my calculation?

The F10 Notification Calculator does not have a built-in save function, but users can still easily record the results of their calculation. After entering the required information, the tool will display the calculated person days and indicate whether the project is notifiable or not.

To save the results, users can simply take a screenshot of the screen or write down the relevant information, such as the project duration and number of people. This will allow users to refer back to the calculation at a later time, or provide the information to others as needed.

It is always a good practice to keep a record of any safety-related calculations or assessments, as they may be needed for future reference or to demonstrate compliance with legal requirements.

What should I do if the F10 Notification Calculator determines that my project is notifiable?

If the F10 Notification Calculator determines that your project is notifiable, it means that it meets the legal requirements under the CDM regulations and you will need to submit an F10 notification to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) before starting the project. The F10 notification provides the HSE with basic information about the project, such as the project address, duration, and the name and contact details of the client, principal contractor, and principal designer.

 

It is important to note that failure to submit an F10 notification for a notifiable project is a criminal offense, and you may face penalties and legal action. Therefore, it is essential to comply with the CDM regulations and submit an F10 notification to the HSE as required.

Is the F10 Notification Calculator endorsed by the HSE or any other official body?

It's important to note that the F10 Notification Calculator is not officially endorsed by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) or any other governing body. However, the tool is designed to be in line with the criteria set out in the CDM Regulations 2015, and can be a helpful guide for determining whether a project is notifiable or not. It's still important to consult with a qualified professional and follow all necessary procedures to ensure compliance with the regulations.

How often is the F10 Notification Calculator updated?

The F10 Notification Calculator is updated regularly to ensure that it reflects any changes to the CDM Regulations 2015 or other relevant regulations. This ensures that the results provided by the calculator are always accurate and up-to-date. It is important to note that while the tool is updated regularly, it is still the responsibility of the user to ensure that they are complying with all relevant regulations and guidelines.
