The Construction Design and Management Regulations 2015 (otherwise referred to as CDM 2015) are a set of regulations which specifically apply to all construction projects to manage and improve health and safety before, during, and after construction work. 

To achieve this, CDM regulations holds responsibility on practically everyone involved on the project – particularly clients, Duty Holders, stakeholders, designers, and contractors. The regulations provide a structure which anyone within the construction industry can follow to ensure they’re complying to health and safety requirements: including the welfare and basic requirements for all construction sites such as security, traffic, emergency procedures, and lighting.
