Principal Design Consultant
The Construction (Design & Management) Regulations 2015 require that all projects which are over 30 construction days AND have more than 20 workers, or where the constructions work will exceed 500 person days or shifts*, appoint a Principal Designer to ensure compliance with relevant Health and Safety Legislation.
Abbott Rose can be appointed as PDC, completing the pre-construction information pack, notifying the HSE of the project and complete contractor approval audits. The completion of the Health and Safety File to be handed to the client at the completion of the project will also comply with the client's specification.
* 1 person on site for 1 day = 1 person day, therefore, 20 people on site for 1 day = 20 person day
Risk Assessments and Method Statements (RAMS)
All operations require a Risk Assessment, however, they should address significant risk and dismiss trivialities. Additionally, Method Statements should deal with specific, often more complex, processes, identifying a specific method of work. Most construction activities will require both a Risk Assessment and a Method Statement.
Abbott Rose can complete task analysis to assist in the completion of comprehensive documents dealing with all tasks to be completed.
Construction Phase Health & Safety Plans
Construction Phase Health and Safety Plans are a requirement for all projects. They are all encompassing and assist in the effective management of Health and Safety throughout the project.
Abbot Rose can produce Construction Phase Health and Safety Plans specific to a project, ensuring all risks are identified and controlled. Additionally, the relevant elements of the plan can be sent to sub-contractors so they can identify the risk associated with their tasks.
Traffic Management Plans
Site specific Traffic Management Plans are required for all construction projects. They must include all aspects of vehicle and pedestrian movements. Additionally, they must clearly identify site routes, direction of travel, loading and unloading areas along with any site specific requirements.
Abbott Rose can develop Site Specific Traffic Management (TM) Plans allowing for the safe movement of vehicles and pedestrians on site. A TM Plan must be updated as work on site progresses and the constraints change. This can either be done by the client or by Valar Safety on their behalf.
