Principal Designer (CDM)


Under the CDM (2015) Regulations any project which is notifiable to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) will require the appointment of a Principal Designer. The role of the Principal Designer is to provide the client with a key project advisor in respect of construction health and safety risk management matters. The Principal Designer will advise and assist the client on appointment of competent contractors and report on the adequacy of management arrangements, prepare construction phase plans, facilitate good communication and co-operation between the project team and prepare the health and safety file at the end of the project.
