The development of legislation that seeks to change the safety culture on construction sites is described. The content of the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 1994 is briefly described along with the changes that the CDM Regulations have introduced to architectural and construction industry practice. The enforcement of the CDM Regulations by the Health and Safety Executive is analysed. While the industry is not being unreasonably persecuted and has been given time to adapt to the requirements of the regulations, clients are now being prosecuted if they have failed to appoint a planning supervisor or principal contractor.
