Construction Phase Plan Explained

A Construction Phase Plan is a document prepared in accordance with Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007 to enable the arrangements for the project, ensuring, as far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare of all persons at work and those who may be affected by the works.

A CDM Coordinator will review the construction phase plan for suitability and offer advice and assistance toward shortfalls in health and safety measures that have not been identified.

A Construction Phase Plan example has been provided at the footer of this article, this document highlights the foreseeable risks present within and around the proposed specimen project area and detail the expected approach for the management and control of health and safety issues on the site throughout the duration of the project.

All Contractors employed on your project must be reminded that a construction phase plan is a ‘live’ document. As such it should be treated as a tool for use in the development of procedures required by law, including but not limited to the Health & Safety at Work Etc. Act 1974, the Construction (Design & Management) Regulations 2007, the Management of Health & Safety at Work Regulations 1999 and such other specialised safety regulations as may apply to the type of work to be undertaken.

  1. Yes i beleive a structure safety plan for all tradesmen on site is needed.

    Safety Officials going around a site just telling workmen to put their hard hats back on is not good enough.

    these safety officials need to be accountable, yes give them a structured way of working.
