When a construction project becomes a 'major construction project' (i.e. regulation 8(b) applies).
- The health and safety project co-ordinator must give notice to the Health and Safety Inspectorate (HIS) as soon as is practicable after he or she is appointed.
- The notice must contain the following particulars:-
- the date of forwarding the notice
- the address of the construction site or precise description of its location
- a brief description of the project and the construction work that it entails
- the name, address, telephone number and email address of the client
- the name, address, telephone number and email address of the health and safety project co-ordinator
- the name, address, telephone number and email address of the principal contractor
- the date planned for the start of the construction phase
- the time allowed by the client to the principal contractor for planning and preparation for construction work
- the planned duration of the construction phase
- the estimated maximum number of persons engaged to undertake construction work on the construction site
- the planned number of contractors on the construction site
- the name and address of any contractor already appointed
- the name and address of any designer already engaged
- a declaration signed by or on behalf of the client that the client is aware of the client’s duties under these Regulations
- The notification must be clearly displayed on site in a comprehensible form where it can be read by any worker engaged in the construction work and, if necessary, periodically updated.
This information is required so that the Health and Safety Inspectorate (HSI) can gain an understanding of the construction works. With this detail and the detail about the people involved they will have a record of the project. If they deem the work to be high risk they may well visit the site to carry out a review. You must make sure that you have all CDM related information available for them, for example the Pre-Construction Information, Construction Phase Plan etc. This may also include associated method statements, safe systems of work and any risk assessments you have carried out. See Notifying the HSI for more information.
