DOCUMENTATION REQUIRED OVER PROJECT LIFE CYCLE


Quantity of documentation

The amount of documentation produced on a typical project has become quite considerable and
should not be underestimated. The 1994 CDM regulations place a legally binding responsibility on the
part of the Client to ensure that the designers, planning supervisors and principal contractors are all
“competent”. Notifiable projects require a considerable amount of supporting documentation in order to
satisfy the HSE.
Failing to ensure that the designer, planning supervisor and principal contractors are appointed, and
competence are two offences that can be committed under section 33 of the 1974 Health & Safety at
Work Act. Failing to ensure that the Health & Safety File and Health & Safety Plan are prepared and
available for inspection are also offences that can be committed by the Client.
