Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007 (CDM), set by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), require all construction contractors to provide adequate facilities for workers when there are more than five operatives on site. They also require any company controlling site work to take responsibility for health and safety, and to ensure that working conditions are safe before work on site begins. Contractors also have a responsibility to ensure that the proposed work will not put others at risk, no matter how large or small the site.
All the high-quality site accommodation facilities you need for any project
The site accommodation supplied by Portakabin Site Accommodation can help you to meet all the requirements of CDM regulations. You can hire buildings to fulfil every site welfare requirement, from mess rooms and drying rooms to showers and toilets. That means you can source all the amenities you need for your on-site personnel from a single supplier, and provide a standard of facilities that is unsurpassed in the construction industry. What’s more, all toilet blocks are configured to provide both male and female facilities with specially designed large washbasins for full forearm washing, which is another requirement of the CDM regulations.
Buildings designed for safe manufacture, transportation and installation
All Portakabin Site Accommodation site cabins are designed to minimise any potential risks to life, during manufacture, transportation and installation on site. This is achieved by a host of safety controls in our factory and by low-level lifting systems which eliminate the need to work at height during installation.
