Director, Chartered Surveyor
Most construction work requires the appointment of a Principal Designer to ensure that health and safety is considered throughout the design and construction process. We are experienced in this role and are Registered Members of The Association of Project Safety.
As part of this role we can take a proactive involvement in ensuring the Pre-Construction Health and Safety Information pack is co-ordinated and that a Health and Safety Plan governing the conduct of the works on site is complied with. The Client can also be responsible for appointing a Principal Contractor on commercial projects where more than one contractor is involved – we will help guide Clients through the Regulations.
We can ensure that notification to the HSE via an F10 form is properly executed when the construction project requires such notification (broadly if it lasts longer than 30 days and it will have more than 20 workers working at the same time at any point in the building project, or involves more than 500 person-days of construction work).
We would also facilitate the compilation of the Health and Safety File, produced in accordance with the Regulations.
The complex raft of legislation has implications for all clients commissioning such construction projects; we have the skills and experience to guide clients through this process.
