Together, the Event Supplier and Services Association (ESSA), the Association of Event Venues (AEV), and the Association of Event Organisers (AEO) have worked with their members and the wider industry to drive towards minimal impact from CDM regulations.
After almost 4 years of working closely with the Health & Safety Executive (HSE), via cross-association member working groups, sector committees, one-to-one meetings and industry forums, we’re very happy to be at a stage where we can now inform and educate the industry with resources all geared towards giving people and their businesses the information and tools necessary to understand and operate in the same efficient manner as always, while complying with Construction, Design & Management (CDM) 2015 regulations.
This industry specific guidance app seeks to map and recognise current industry practice, using existing regulations and best practice to meet the new CDM regulations. The following resources are intended to help you understand the responsibilities of the various stake holders in the event industry. The Construction, Design & Management (CDM) Regulations do not replace any existing law but are intended to provide a framework to help you meet the requirement and helping you understand your obligations.
These documents and templates should be viewed as a summary for meeting minimum requirements and should at all times be used in conjunction with Health and Safety at Work Act, HSE’s exhibition specific guidance on CDM 2015 and also the HSE’s official L153 guidance on CDM.
