Health & Safety File (HSF)
CDM (Jersey) Knowledge Base
Please note this topic relates to the CDM (Jersey) 2016 Regulations. If you are looking for the CDM 2015 (Great Britain) Regulations, please see the CDM (GB) Knowledge Base
The health and safety file (or HSF) is prepared or revised by the health and safety project co-ordinator, for major projects, or the principal contractor for small projects which do not fall within the definition of a major project and where two or more contractors are engaged. It will require the health and safety project co-ordinator or principal contractor to liaise with the commercial client, designer, principal contractor and contractors.
The file will contain information necessary for future construction, maintenance, refurbishment or demolition to be carried out safely, and is retained by the commercial client or any future owner of the property. The health and safety file should be a useful and valuable document for the commercial client and other key parties who may carry out future construction work on the premises. For more information see what is included in a Health and Safety File.
