CDM Principal Designer & CDM Advisor

As a Corporate Practice of The Association of Project Safety we are accredited and externally audited under Safety Systems in Procurement (SSIP Registration Number 050556) to act as Principal Designer and Advisor under The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015.  We have successfully delivered these services for 22 years, ensuring that projects benefit from a totally independent consultant focused on health, safety and welfare.

We can be appointed directly as the Principal Designer by clients, or through one of the design team or the principal contractor as CDM Advisor, although clients should consider the competence of the those they primarily appoint and the validity of indemnity through a third party.

We also undertake independent site safety inspections and audits where appointed to do so, together with incident investigation.

Our CDM narrative continues to focus on clarity of practical, pragmatic and proactive advice to clients, designers and contractors to ensure projects are carried out without risks to health and safety whilst promoting sensible solutions to reduce capital expenditure and cost in-use.

We work closely with designers to develop documented strategies from the earliest stage of a project detailing appropriate safe systems of work for construction and maintenance, providing free training to promote client and designers’ duties and the application of the Principles of Prevention where this helps achieve best practice.  In addition, our experience in the production of handover documentation means that we constantly focus on delivery of a comprehensive records at practical completion.
