Latest Post: CDM: Employer/Designer duties by David Brede on 8 June

Certainly it is not satisfactory to have have a site unsafe at any stage let alone at construction phase. Clients have their roles but if they are not competent they can seek support from other parties such as yourself as a contractor. Is there a solution that can be implemented by a contractor? Clearly you have a professional reputation to defend as a contractor and would be potentially liable in the event of an incident occurring at a site you operated that was unsafe when not occupied or staffed in any way. You are doing the right things here and you may have to consider hard decisions about whether this client is someone you want to deal with if they are unwilling to address your concerns.
