Find out about the Construction, Design and Management Regulations 2015.

Unless well managed, construction sites are some of the most dangerous workplaces in the UK. The Construction, Design and Management Regulations 2015 have been written to improve health and safety on construction sites and apply to every construction site, including for temporary works.

These Regulations apply to show builds and demolition, theatre set changes and get out and all other temporary builds regardless of scale, duration or location.
