CDM Coordinator Role Services

The CDM Coordinator Role

What a CDM Coordinator must do for all Notifiable Projects (Part 3 of the Regulations) – CDM Co-ordinators must:

  • Give suitable and sufficient advice and assistance to clients in order to help them to comply with their duties, in particular the duty to appoint competent designers and contractors; and the duty to ensure that adequate arrangements are in place for managing the project.
  • Notify HSE about the project.
  • Co-ordinate design work, planning and other preparation for construction where relevant to health and safety.
  • Identify and collect the pre-construction information and advise the client if surveys need to be commissioned to fill significant gaps.
  • Promptly provide in a convenient form to those involved with the design of the structure; and to every contractor (including the principal contractor) who may be or has been appointed by the client, such parts of the pre-construction information which are relevant to each.
  • Manage the flow of health and safety information between clients, designers and contractors.
  • Advise the client on the suitability of the initial construction phase plan and the arrangements made to ensure that welfare facilities are on site from the start.
  • Co-ordinate the production or updating of a relevant, user friendly, health and safety file suitable for future use at the end of the construction phase.

  1. Hello
    My name is Jim Lennox. I am looking for work. I have vast experience in construction both on site and as a Health and Safety Consultant. I currently work 2 days every week as a CDM Co-ordinator for other clients on multi- million projects. I also provide training (currently carrying out CDM training for Thomas Telford Training – part of the ICE). Although I live in Scotland I am happy to travel. Fees are negotiable.
    If this is of any interest please give me a call. Thanks for your time.
