  3. Widespread lack of CDM knowledge reported

Most constructors are unaware of the new laws concerning workplace safety on construction sites, which include the provision of personal protection equipment, a survey has shown.

A poll of constructors by building software firm HXBL, carried out at the Harrogate Tool Fair, showed that 85 per cent of constructors did not know about the Construction Design Management (CDM) 2007 regulations, Industrial Safety Talk reports.

The survey also showed that 80 per cent did not know what effect the new regulations, introduced in April, will have on their business.

HXBL marketing manager Andy Botibol warned that those breaching the new regulations could be fined or even jailed.

He added: 'This continued lack of understanding highlights the urgent need for builders to make sure their health and safety policies and procedures are right up to date.'

The CDM regulations, which came into force on April 6th, specify the duties of contractors, clients and designers in relation to the working environment, provision of personal protection equipment and implementation of site rules.
