Construction Phase Plans in the North East of England
At Northern Safety we specialise in providing Construction Phase Plans in Stockton, Middlesbrough and the Teesside area as well as Durham, Newcastle and North East England. The Construction Phase Plans we provide are a legal requirement of the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015.
Under the CDM Regulations it is a requirement for the development of a Construction Phase Plan to a level that is acceptable prior to the commencement of work on site. The amount of detail in the safety plan will be dependent upon the nature and scope of the project and on the contract arrangements for the construction work.
What is a construction phase plan?
The Construction Phase Plan must detail exactly how health and safety risks will be managed, what the emergencies procedures for the site are, and the methods of communication to be used. It also must be relevant to the particular project and should build on the information provided by the Client and the Pre-Construction Information Pack. In addition, the Plan should set out the arrangements for ensuring the health, safety and welfare of everyone carrying out the construction work and all others who may be affected by it.
What do you mean by construction?
The definition of construction is very broad, essentially, if a job provides types of preparation, construction, alteration, conversion, ‘fitting out’, commissioning, renovation, repair, upkeep, redecoration, maintenance, de-commissioning, demolition or dismantling of a structure is classed as construction work. A construction site is classed as anywhere where construction activities take place.
What should be in the Construction Health and Safety Phase Plan?
Normally you would expect to see the following included:
- Description of the project.
- Communication and Management of the Project
- Arrangements for Control of the Significant Risks
- Site Specific Arrangements
- The Health and Safety File
