This is the designer’s essential guide to implementing the new CDM 2015 regulations. It provides both a straightforward overview of the key changes and new duty holders, including the Principal Designer, as well as full colour diagrams and annotated plans which demonstrate how to apply the principles in the real world. As the regulations come into force it aims to reassure those fearing a change in their obligations by outlining easy to use practical tools which will integrate the philosophy of the new regulations – of proportionate response, creative solutions and collaborative working – into day-to-day practice. It’s designed as a concise and handy quick reference guide, easy to carry around on site or use at your desk, translating what can be dry and often impenetrable legislation into a set of simple, intuitive, design friendly and safe messages. Written by an architect with considerable industry experience in CDM, with intimate knowledge of the new regulations and years of practice in technical design enabling designers to integrate CDM without compromising their vision. It provides authoritative CDM support that tailored for the design professions, especially in the often misunderstood but essential area of aesthetics.
This is a must-have for all designers and architects who will need to utilise the new regulations in their projects from April 2015 onwards as well as the contractors, clients and consultants who will need to understand and collaborate with them.
Read the RIBA's exclusive guidance for members and chartered practices on the changes.

Dr Harriet Harriss, Program lead, Masters in Applied Design in Architecture (MArchD, RIBA, Part II) Oxford Brookes
For many architecture students, Health & Safety regulations are often considered a confusing and creatively constraining obligation. Yet Paul Bussey's highly accessible text does much to make understanding Health & Safety obligations compelling and lucid. Professional readers familiar with the 2007 CDM regulations will find the 2015 amendments clearly highlighted, proving a useful tool for explaining the expectations to clients. Yet within the measured and factual analysis beats a heart committed to emphasising the importance of site safety within a production context most often focussed upon achieving efficiency driven profit margins. This book is therefore a must read for architects and other professionals keen to evidence their value to clients and to prove their commitment to delivering responsible on-site behaviours and ethical public practice.
Anne Markey, Head of Projects, CPD and Enterprise at Sir John Cass Faculty of Art, Architecture and Design, London Metropolitan
This book provides a timely explanation as to how architects who understand and appreciate the design review process can embrace the new CDM Regulations to fulfil their duty of care to those impacted by their designs using methods such as 'Safety Visually' that will feel at once familiar and clear.
Adrian Dobson, Director of Practice, RIBA
Health and Safety in construction is above all an ethical issue for all in the industry. The CDM Regulations provide a regulatory framework to help ensure the well being of those who build and maintain our built environment. This expert book by Paul Bussey provides architects and designers with clear and focussed guidance on discharging their duties to achieve both compliance and most importantly effective outcomes and healthier and safer working environments.
Helen Humphrey, Architect and Visiting External Reviewer at University of Huddersfield
Paul Bussey provides clear understanding for Architects and Designers with a practical and creative approach to the integration of CDM 2015 into Architectural Design. Paul gives key messages of our new duties and outlines the comparisons of each duty holder and highlights changes from 2007 to 2015. This book is a must read for construction professionals and designers in creating a balance of stimulating architectural design while having a understanding of constructional safety and maintenance of what we are designing.
David Gloster, Director of Education, RIBA
In the headlong rush for the practice of architecture to be subsumed into the mainstream of high profit, low responsibility business, this book is a timely reminder of the ethical responsibilities of architects and architecture. Whilst we acknowledge construction as inevitably hazardous, it cannot be presumed the modern site will have protocols in place which mitigate all risks – unless architects proactively embrace such need. Paul Bussey provides persuasive evidence of the demand for every site operation to be analysed, ensuring that the squandering of human life historically accepted as a norm in building production will never be repeated. This book is systematic, intensely readable, and should inform every responsible architect’s design methodology.
Nigel Ostime, architect at whiteroom architecture and author of Small Projects Handbook
A clearly written and comprehensive book that will help all design professionals to be confident about what is considered best practice in this important area. It includes helpful tools for assessing, communicating and mitigating hazards and risks and a handy comparison between the 2007 and 2015 regulations, which will help designers through the transition period.
Diane Dale, Practice and Technical Director at Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists
This book is primarily written with architects and civil engineers in mind. However, any designer is likely to find its content useful. CIAT supports the use of graphical interpretation of Health and Safety in design documentation which makes clear to all in the construction team the hazards of any particular project. In addition, it offers a good perspective on both the development and history of the CDM Regulations from their inception in 1994 and a comprehensive comparison of the differences between 2007 and 2015 Regulations.
Peter Caplehorn, Deputy Chief Executive & Policy Director, Construction Products Association
A must for all architects and designers practicing in the built environment today. It has ideas and guidance learned in the face of commercial and legal realities. Building on the techniques Paul has developed and tested in practice it is a testament to approaching the subject in a practical, balanced and proportionate way.

This book is A5 format and not A4 as originally given the impresion by the cover advert on the RIBA bookshop website. It is over-priced and out of date. Page 38 explains "Readers should acquaint themselves with the general principles here and then refer to the completed primary source documents."
