What are the CDM Regulations?

Home / FAQ / What are the CDM Regulations?

The CDM Regulations, or the Construction Design and Management Regulations 2015, are a set of regulations which aim to simplify the old laws surrounding health and safety on constructions sites.

With regards to racking inspections and storage equipment safety, the most important things to know are that the new CDM regulations mean that a warehouse now counts as a construction site and that the owner (or the person responsible) for a warehouse is the “client”.

Legally, it is the client’s responsibility to guarantee everyone’s safety — including visitors — and to make sure that anyone working at the warehouse is competent enough to do so. It is also the client’s responsibility to judge for themselves whether or not someone is an expert. This is yet another reason why SEMA’s labelling of SEMA approved racking inspectors as experts in HSG76 is so important.
