CDM 2016 Regulations (Northern Ireland)

Construction (Design & Management) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2016

Callsafe Services Ltd is one of the foremost construction health and safety consultants in the UK. We aim to instil exemplar standards across all our services to attain the highest of health and safety criteria but with a realistic and pragmatic approach.

Callsafe Services Ltd were involved in the construction industry since before the original CDM1994 Regulations came into force. Following their introduction, we acted as Planning Supervisors, then CDM Co-ordinators under CDM (NI) 2007 Regulations, and now fulfil the Principal Designer role under CDM Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2016. We are also supplying CDM (NI) 2016 Advisor services to Clients and other Principal Designers.

Callsafe Services Ltd are a Registered Practice with the Association for Project Safety (APS), so can demonstrate our commitment to continuous improvement of our clients’ and our projects’ processes. Our consultants/trainers are all qualified and practicing health and safety professionals working within the construction industry, and have extensive experience as health and safety advisors and managers for Client, Designer and Contractor organisations, including Facilities Managers.

If you need an organisation that understands the requirements of CDM (NI) 2016 and how these regulations are applied to construction projects, or other health and safety requirements, and how these requirements can be achieved in a cost-effective way, to act as your Principal Designer or CDM Advisor, provide health and safety guidance, advice and assistance and/or provide effective training; please contact Callsafe Services Ltd to discuss what services we offer.



Principal Designer

Our extensive experience in carrying out the CDM Co-ordinator role under CDM (NI) 2007 in both building (including demolition and refurbishment) and civil engineering work, and our team of staff and associates (most of whom are qualified in architectural and engineering disciplines), provides us with the appropriate skills, knowledge, experience and organisational capability to carry out the duties of Principal Designer under CDM (NI) 2016 on all types of project.



CDM Advisor

With the changes made to the requirements placed on duty holders by CDM(NI)2016, principally the Client and Principal Designer, Callsafe Services Ltd now provides an advisory service to CDM Clients who have the extended duties under CDM(NI)2016, who may find themselves without the advice and assistance previously provided by the CDM Co-ordinator. CDM Clients may also which to appoint a CDM Advisor when no Principal Designer appointment has been made, i.e., for projects where only a single contractor is engaged.

We also provide the above service to appointed Principal Designers, so becoming part of their delivery team and enhancing their skills, knowledge, experience and capability.

Impartial advice can be provided to those carrying out the duties of Designer, Principal Contractor and Contractor with regard to compliance with CDM (NI) 2016 and other site safety management systems. Such advice includes methods to achieve this and procedures for on-site implementation.

Principal Designer and CDM Advisor services are also provided to other organisations, including Veolia UK and McDonald’s Restaurants.
