WORKSHOP ANNOUNCEMENT: Collaborative risk management under CDM 2015: The dutyholder perspective

Occupational safety and health (OSH) still remains a challenge to the construction industry world-wide and source of worry for industry stakeholders. The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations (CDM) have been the primary tool to drive changes in the management of health and safety in the industry. Five (5) years after its latest Regulations (CDM 2015), there is a need for introspection, stock-taking and honest discussion on current practice and how to manage more collaboratively OSH risks on construction projects.

Consequently, the University of Wolverhampton has secured funding from the EU for a research project, dubbed “PRE-COSH”, to study and produce a flexible model for effective CDM 2015 compliance during the pre-construction phase of projects. For more information on the PRE-COSH project, kindly visit

You are invited to join us in a series of online workshops over a period of six (6) weeks, beginning from July 2020 to share experiences, best practices and views on alternative approaches to effective compliance with CDM 2015.

We will be glad, if you could share this information with friends and colleagues whom you think will be interested in participating in any of these workshops.
