It is more important than ever for the whole construction team, including clients, to be aware of their duties.
Our designers will initially check with clients to ensure they are aware of their duties, which for all projects involving more than one contractor begins with an obligation to appoint a Principal Designer.
As a multi-disciplinary practice, William Saunders is able to offer the Principal Designer role in house as we have qualified health and safety practitioners to assist and advise our designers on fulfilling this role.
Where another organisation is appointed as the Principal Designer, we can offer an advisory role to both them and the client to assist them in discharging their duties under the Regulations. Full details of the assistance we can provide in this scenario is included in the pdf link below.
Once appointed as either Principal Designer or Client Adviser, we will advise and assist our clients with their duties, co-ordinate health and safety aspects of design work and ensure co-operation with all the duty holders involved in the project.
Our CDM consultants are all experienced professionals and professionally qualified registered members of the Association of Project Safety.
