The APS National Conference 2019:

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

Wednesday 4 September 2019
Sheffield Hallam University

This year’s flagship Association for Project Safety conference 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.

The APS conference – coming this year from central Sheffield - will be addressing key issues facing the construction sector. Concentrating on cross-industry collaboration the APS conference will bring together a top flight line up of leading industry experts and practitioners for keynote thought-leadership sessions and technical break-outs on emerging issues. These will include the quinquennial review of the Construction [Design and Management] Regulations 2015 coming up in 2020, building regulations post-Brexit and how colleagues from across construction can work effectively together to ensure continuity and improve safety
