||The construction sector remains one of the most dangerous in the United Kingdom. Although The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 1994 (CDM, see CIS 95-13) clearly define the designer's duties with respect to the reduction of health and safety risks during construction, previous research has concluded that there is concern in the construction industry regarding limited success in securing safer designs. This project describes simple examples of how designers have significantly improved construction safety, reduced costs and shortened programme time.
