North Scotland: Construction Design Management Workshop

Book now

This workshop is aimed at exploring how the CDM (Construction Design Management) regulations are applied in forestry situations.  It is intended to be an open forum, round table discussion, where all participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss scenarios. Participants are also asked to bring along anonymised samples of their current paperwork to aid in the discussion of how to document compliance with the regulations.

A number of senior engineers and forest managers with particular experience in road works have been invited and will share their experience with the group.

Due to the severely restricted numbers, we would ask that large organisations co-ordinate their attendance so that one person can disseminate the learning to the rest.

Questions to be tackled are:

  • When does CDM apply to forestry (with worked examples)?
  • Can we map the current forestry Health and Safety roles straight onto CDM roles?
  • How do we deal with the welfare requirements of ‘construction’ workers?
  • What goes into a Construction phase plan?
  • How would we deal with a Health and Safety file requirement?
  • At what point does road engineering go beyond the competency of a chartered forester?

If time allows, we will also be discussing quarry regulations, bridge assessments and the Prior Notification process.
