Principal Designer Services

The Principal Designers (PD) services offered by Derisk are set out in accordance with regulations and to improve the health and safety record on construction sites. The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 (CDM 2015) require all parties involved in a construction project to take responsibility for health and safety standards.

Derisk believe that unacceptably high accident and fatality rates will be reduced through the consideration of risk and successful management of those risks through a coordinated and controlled approach during all stages of the project – conception, design, planning, construction work, future maintenance and use of the building.

Why do I need a Principal Designer?

The PD is an appointment which the client must make where there are more than 2 contractors working on site at any one time, to ensure that health and safety and design risk management is co-ordinated during the design and planning phases of any project.

The role of the Principal Designer is to provide the client with a key project advisor in respect of health and safety risk management matters.  Derisk’s Principal Designers role is seen as pivotal in helping to improve the overall standards of health and safety on projects and in particular, we can confidently guide, advise and influence our clients into making good, sound decisions about health and safety on projects.

This is where we can help, contact us today.
