CDM (Construction Design Management) Regulations place specific duties on clients, planning supervisors, designers and contractors to plan, co-ordinate and manage Health & Safety throughout all stages of a project.

Anyone appointing a designer or contractor has to ensure that they are competent enough to carry out the work and will allocate adequate resources to comply with the current regulations.

L&B Technical Services have trained management and supervisory personnel in-house to facilitate CDM on your behalf.

L&B Technical are cognisant of the fact that the very nature of our business can mean that there are potential high risk hazards for people on-site. In addition to the primary, very human cost of an accident, there are additional considerations: the loss of time, production, money and reputation to consider. For these reasons it is of paramount importance that we do all we can to identify and reduce the risk of accidents to your employees and ours, to site visitors, members of the public and other sub-contractors.

To make this happen, L&B start by working with your line-health and safety management carrying out a full risk assessment of each project. This is designed, in association with our very comprehensive safety policies and procedures, to ensure that nobody (as far as is reasonably practicable) is exposed to health and safety risks. This work is carried out by our own specialist qualified safety staff, who are very experienced in performing risk assessments, providing training and monitoring performance. With this in mind, we obviously need full agreement on our proposed system of working the contract. So we first produce a method statement which can be fully discussed and agreed before work begins. And should CDM regulations apply, we can, if required, complete this task in full.

Increasingly greater emphasis is placed by regulators and clients alike on the scrutiny of accident records of all companies in the service sector; something L&B welcome.

L&B Technical Services Ltd is justifiably proud of its excellent safety record and will continue to do everything possible to maintain it. Safety necessarily remains our paramount operating principle.
