CDM (Jersey) 2016 Regulations

CDM only applies to construction projects involving people at work. Some construction projects are undertaken by people who are not at work. These include;

  • Self-build groups building homes where they will live
  • Charity volunteers
  • Community service offenders

CDM can apply to such projects if other people 'work' on the project, for example:-

  • People employed by a charity to manage and direct work done by volunteers
  • A company formed to administer work on behalf of a self-build group. That company may then hire professionals to carry out some operations, including specialist ground work contractors.
