Construction Phase Plans
A Construction Phase Plan (previously known as Construction Phase Health and Safety Plan) is a legal document required to be prepared by Principal Contractor on a notifiable project (where site work involves 30 days or 500 person days on site) under the Construction Design and Management (CDM) Regulations 2007 (Regulation 23).
It is also a legal duty under the CDM Regulations on both the Client (Regulation 16) and on the Principal Contractor (Regulations 23) that site work must not commence on a notifiable project unless a suitable and sufficient Construction Phase Plan is in place.
The level of details are laid down in the CDM Regulations (Appendix 3). The Plan must not be generic, should be prepared considering the issues identified in the Pre-construction Information (PCI) and should reflect the specific site information.
At SafeScope we assist Principal Contractors in the preparation of Construction Phase Plans as required on a one off or regular basis.
