Delivering leadership in CDM - a blueprint for 2020 (12 CPD points)

Wednesday 4 September 2019

This year’s flagship Association for Project Safety conference, taking place in central Sheffield will unveil its proposals for the future of the Construction [Design and Management[] regulations 2015, considering how the association's professional membership believes construction can be made safer and healthier for everyone and how the CDM Regulations can be efficiently and cost-effectively brought up to date.
