Other considerations before you start work

Health and Safety

The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 (CDM 2015) cover all building work, including householder projects and work that may be considered permitted development and/or exempt from the building regulations.

If you are carrying out, or having construction or building work done, you may need to notify the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and may have other duties as well.

View further information about your responsibilities on the Health and Safety Executive website.
