PRINCIPAL DESIGNER

Under the CDM Regulations 2015, the Principal Designer (PD) has a central role and wide-ranging responsibilities within your project. These include planning, managing, monitoring and coordinating health and safety in the pre-construction phase, and preparing and presenting relevant information to other duty holders. The PD also provides relevant information to the Principal Contractor (PC), who’s then in charge of managing health and safety during the construction phase.

Appointing a PD as early as possible, ensures health and safety is firmly embedded in the project from the start, and that the Regulations are fully complied with.

Over 20 years experience in Design Risk Management and the implementation of the CDM Regulations

We have the skills, knowledge, training and experience to act as the Principal Designer on a wide range of projects.

We will help you achieve your objectives with minimal risk and cost by being completely independent and objective, and fully abreast of the various Acts and Regulations you’re subject to.

Refocus Safety were engaged to act as the PD on a large project which involved cladding of a warehouse roof. The PCID was issued very quickly with the level of detail which allowed us to develop a CPP in plenty of time. this was approved with no issues. At all times during the project the PD & I were in constant communication to ensure that the project was coming along safely. Information was shared at convenient times and, at the end of the project the PD was keen to ensure that we had relayed all the neccessary paperwork to him which allowed Refocus Safety to complete their own paperwork. Russell Blythe showed great professionalism at all times, made sure that all the documentation was in order and, was prepared to change/alter any paperwork when it was neccessary. We look forward to engaging with Refocus safety again in the future.
