Did you know that under Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015, a construction phase plan is required for every construction project (even small projects) There is no requirement for this plan to be large and complicated, but it should reflect that consideration has been given to health and safety on the project.
For working for domestic clients, you will be responsible for preparing the phase plan, and organising the work, and ensuring health and safety has been planned for the project. This would come into effect if you were the only contractor/principal contractor on the project.
Examples could be the following
- Kitchen and bathroom refurbishments
- Loft conversions
- New roof or repair work
These are examples of smaller projects that a basic phase plan will cover the works, for larger projects that last longer than 500 person days or 30 working days that involve more than 20 workers at the same time, than this would fall into the notifiable category for the HSE and require an F10 certificate and a far more complex construction phase plan to be in place.
Did you know that under the Management of Health and Safety at work Regulations 1999, every employer must enlist one or more competent persons to assist with complying with their statutory duties under Health and Safety law. Where no competent person exists within a company, the services of an external Health and Safety Consultant of Adviser should be sought to undertake the role.
Project Assurance can provide this role on a retained basis, this is a cost-effective solution to ensuring a company remains compliant and complies with Regulation 7 of the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999. Please get in touch for more information on this service.
