CDM ADVISER - ensuring that projects minimise risks


As a Construction Design and Management (CDM) adviser, WP Housing provides health and safety advice and assistance to clients and other duty-holders on a contract relating to health and safety during the design and construction phases of a construction project.

The role of a CDM adviser is to ensure that the project is carried out in a way that minimises the risk of harm to anyone who may be affected by the work, including workers, visitors, and members of the public.

The CDM adviser is responsible for advising on the implementation of the CDM regulations, which require the identification and management of health and safety risks throughout the construction process.

Our activities embrace the following:

  • Advising the client on their duties under the CDM regulations
  • Providing advice to the design team on health and safety issues
  • Assisting with the development of the Construction Phase Plan and Health and Safety File
  • Advising on the suitability of contractors and sub-contractors
  • Providing guidance on the management of health and safety during the construction phase
  • Inspecting the site to ensure compliance with health and safety regulations
  • Advising on the implementation of measures to control risks on the site
  • Providing training and guidance to workers and other duty holders
  • Reporting accidents, incidents, and near misses to the relevant authorities
  • Ensuring that the project complies with all relevant health and safety legislation.

WP Housing has extensive experience in managing works safely and in compliance with health and safety regulations, protecting the health and well-being of all those involved on a construction site.
