in Design for Safety (CDM Concept & Incident Prevention)


The Construction Design Management (CDM) regulations were introduced in the United Kingdom on 31st March 1995 in compliance with European Directives. The objectives of this regulation are to improve construction safety by enhancing co-ordination and communication among project parties through out all stages of the construction project. In Singapore, the Design for Safety Regulations has been enforced from 1 Aug 2016 and requires developers, designers and contractors to work together to address the risk at source and plan for the construction work.

In July 1995, the Hong Kong Government had published a Consultation Paper (HK Govt. 1995) on the review of industry safety in Hong Kong, and one of the item of consultation was on implementation of Construction (Design and Management) (CDM) regulations in Hong Kong.

The Development Bureau (DEVB) had taken the lead to implement the model under UK's (Design and Management) Regulations (CDM Regulations) in public works in 2006. The result of the survey indicates that many stakeholders in the industry struggled with the CDM Guidance Notes' systematic approach and concepts.

In fact, the review of Occupational Safety and Health Statistics 2016, the construction industry has always had high accident rates among other industries. Analyzed by type, "falling from height" was the largest category of fatal construction accidents, claiming the lives of 11 persons or 30% of total figure of death in construction during 2005 - 2016. It was followed by "electric shock" (5%), struck by "vehicles" (5%), "moving objects" (5%) and "falling objects (5%).


Review the concept of CDM for health and safety considerations to be treated as effectively, efficiently, seamlessly and naturally integrating practices the new model of construction safety management referred to as "Design for Safety".


The CDM Guidance Notes' systematic approach and concepts that has been introduced the main objectives of which are to:

l   Promote early involvement, effective cooperation and communication of all stakeholders through the timely provision of relevant and necessary information.

l   Improve clarity on the demarcation of the roles and responsibilities of the parties responsible for coordinating and providing relevant project data on risks at all stages of a project.

l   Identifying the outputs of the "Design for Safety" application process and the specific risk reduction measures. Hazard identification and mitigation should be initiated at the early design stages to eliminate or minimize the risks of injury and be continued through the subsequent stages of project development, implementation, maintenance and demolition for better safety management in the whole project life cycle.

l   Sharing experience the safety of a construction project and appurtenant structures applies to all stages in the life cycle commencing with the inception stage; through the planning and design stages; followed by the construction and commissioning and ongoing operation and maintenance stages; and in certain cases, decommissioning.
