Rawlings Safety & Training Consultancy Services Accredited Principal Designer

Purple_RGB_Accredited (1)

We are pleased to confirm that we have successfully been accredited to carry out the role of Principal Designer under the CDM Regulations 2015

 

Accredited Principal Designer

A principal designer must be a designer as defined by the regulations, and must be able to demonstrate they have the health and safety skills, knowledge and experience (SKE), and where they are an organisation, the organisational capability, to carry out the work they are being appointed for. The level of SKE should be proportionate to the complexity of the project and the range and nature of the risks involved. This will involve having:

  • the technical knowledge of the construction industry relevant to the project;
  • the ability to understand, manage and coordinate the pre-construction phase (including ensuring that significant and foreseeable risks are managed through the design process) and any design work carried out after construction begins.

Rawlings Safety & Training Consultancy Services are registered Principal Designers with both the Association for Project Safety and CHAS. As part of this process we have to demonstrate our competence both in the safety field but also show that we have a design and construction background.

The Health and Safety Executive have stated that an example of demonstrating organisational capability can include the successful award from third party assessors, such as those who are members of Safety Schemes in Procurement Forum.

Check the HSE’s Guidance at: www.hse.gov.uk/construction/areyou/principal-designer.htm

It is important to note that the award should be for the ‘Principal Designer’ role and not just for a ‘Contractor’ which is a different dutyholder and discipline. You should check that those you appoint for the Principal Designer or Advisor role can satisfy this requirement and this can be done at: www.ssipportal.org.uk/Home
