Is there a monetary value to which CDM applies?
e.g. some of my co-workers insist that anything £25,000 or less will not attract the CDM Regulations.
The question above was originally posed via our Ask A Guru feature and this response from 2004 was by either Dave Carr or Michael Stokes.
The CDM regulations make no reference to values of work, only time periods / numbers of personnel working on site (except of course in relation to demolition, where the regulations apply whatever).
In practice, there must be a monetary value connected with this time/personnel criteria although whether this is £25,000 will be dependant upon the individual circumstances. It could not be justified to seek to ignore CDM just because the value of works are less than £25,000.
