We aim to develop and maintain a positive, proactive attitude towards improving health and safety within the construction process, applying a reasoned interpretation of the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations and other related Health and Safety legislation as appropriate to the type, complexity and circumstances of any given project.
Depending on the nature of instruction, Spring is nearly always able to offer not only the scope of services as required to satisfy the role of a CDM Principal Designer (PD) under the 2015 regulations, but if required also provide tailored construction health and safety advice including reporting on the working practices of other duty holders.
Where instructed as a PD, we will plan, manage and monitor the pre-construction phase to ensure that the project is carried out without risks to the health or safety of the principal contractor, end user and future demolisher. We proactively assist the client with understanding and implementing their duties; disseminate available pre-construction information; assist the principal contractor in the construction phase; and prepare and/or update the Health and Safety file.
We also have an excellent understanding of CDM, with our senior team having many years’ experience as designers, CDM Coordinators and more recently, Principal Designers. We employ an Incorporated Member of the Association of Project Safety (IMaPS) and take health and safety awareness very seriously here at Spring BC, including the enrolment of all our surveyors on the Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) as Professionally Qualified Persons.
