To avoid criminal convictions, ensure you are fully aware of your legal responsibilities under the CDM Regulations. The "CDM Regulations Explained: 2nd Edition" is a practical and comprehensive guide to the most important development in health and safety law covering the construction industry - The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 1994. "CDM Regulations Explained" has been specifically written to provide step-by-step practical advice and guidance on the Regulations to help you avoid the potential pitfalls, and associated penalties, of non-compliance. In this new edition of "CDM Regulations explained", the original highly acclaimed text has been updated to include the following: new statutory amendments including changes to the role of designers; full index and tabling; updated case law; reference to standard forms of contract; review of penalties and enforcement since 1995; and full text of the "CDM Regulations" as amended.Since the first edition of this book, the role of the designer has been reviewed by the Court of Appeal thus exposing a loophole that was quickly plugged by the Construction (Design and Management) (Amendment) Regulations 2000. There have also been a number of amendments to other related health and safety Regulations, all of which have led to consequential amendments to the CDM Regulations. These are also covered in this authoritative second edition. "The CDM Regulations Explained: 2nd Edition" is an essential resource for those concerned with building, civil engineering and structural design, building surveyors, quantity surveyors and construction equipment designers and also architects. This book is a must for those responsible for the procurement or management of construction projects. Students hoping to reach management level in the construction industry will also find this an invaluable source of information
