Experience Sharing Webinar on Construction Design and Management (CDM) - Design for Safety

Experience Sharing Webinar on Construction Design and Management (CDM) - Design for Safety

The Development Bureau (DEVB) had taken the lead to implement the model under UK's (Design and Management) Regulations (CDM Regulations) in public works in 2006. The Guidance Notes on "Construction, Design and Management" and Worked Examples were prepared and brought a significant change for the Hong Kong construction industry by outlining Safe Design concepts for safety and health on construction projects and placing responsibilities on the duty holders who procure, design or manage the construction projects. The Guidance Notes have been referenced by the local practitioners and contractors for years and noted of areas where the concepts and approach were difficult to follow. The Guidance Notes was reviewed and updated for publication in 2013.

This webinar is organised by the School of Professional Development in Construction (SPDC) of the Hong Kong Institute of Construction. The speaker will share with us his experience in implementation of CDM on a site formation works.
