We are very proud that the States of Jersey Infrastructure team have successfully implemented ToolKit CS as their CDM management system. Compared to the British CDM2015 regs, the regulations are different for the States of Jersey; the Management in Construction (Jersey) Regulations 2016 (CDM2016) were brought into force in October 2016 and replaced the 'Construction (Safety Provisions) (Jersey) Regulations 1970' and the 'Approved Code of Practice Managing Health and Safety in Construction' (ACoP 11).
The main objective for the States of Jersey was to ensure CDM compliance for the Infrastructure team. As the regulations were new, the head of Health and Safety wanted to give the team a tool to manage their projects as well as making sure they were compliant with the new CDM2016 regulations. It was important for them to provide 24/7 access to the system so that those involved with the CDM process had access to up to date CDM information whenever they needed it, in the office, on site, on the move.

We get a lot of queries from people and organisations about 'how' they should be managing their asbestos and what should they be doing to ensure that they are compliant with the CAR12 regulations.
At Ai Solutions we pride ourselves in supporting our customers and we have produced the ToolKit CS Asbestos Compliance System to aid those who need help. In order to comply you need to make sure your building assets have had appropriate surveys carried out. The results from those surveys (including, ACM detail, MAS, PAS, RAS, photos and plans) are made available to all those that may need to maintain the building/structure or undertake any construction or demolition.

The team at Ai Solutions have been finding out more about the synergy between CDM and BIM. We don't believe there are many of us that are unfamiliar with both these terms, but, just in case. BIM is Building Information Modelling and the government has set out its strategy to reach level 3. CDM is the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations and all construction projects now fall under this set of regulations.
