The clients responsibilities under CDM2007

What clients must do for all projects

Clients must make sure that:

  • All designers, contractors and other team members that they propose to engage are competent and are adequately resourced and appointed early enough for the work they have to do.
  • They allow sufficient time for each stage of the project, from concept onwards;
  • They co-operate with others concerned in the project as is necessary to allow other duty holders to comply with their duties under the Regulations;
  • They co-ordinate their own work with others involved with the project in order to ensure the safety of those carrying out the construction work, and others who may be affected by it;
  • There are reasonable management arrangements in place throughout the project to ensure that the construction work can be carried out, so far as is reasonably practicable, safely and without risk to health. (This does not mean managing the work themselves, as few clients have the expertise and resources needed and it can cause confusion);
  • Contractors have made arrangements for suitable welfare facilities to be provided from the start and throughout the construction phase;
  • Any fixed workplaces (for example offices, shops, factories, schools) which are to be constructed will comply, in respect of their design and the materials
  • Relevant information likely to be needed by designers, contractors or others to plan and manage their work is passed to them in order to comply with regulation 10.
