The changes to the CDM regulations that came into force on April 6 2015 not only created the new role of ‘Principal Designer’ but with it, a host of related duties for clients and contractors.

HFL:CDM Ltd was established in July 2015 as a direct response to customer demand for CDM consultancy for construction, process engineering and event management projects based on the company’s extensive experience in the provision of CDM and general Health & Safety services to the Process Engineering industry.

HFL:CDM Ltd’s Managing Director, Wayne Baxter, commented, “Our sister company, Haden Freeman Ltd, had provided Health & Safety advice to the process industries from its formation in 1984, including CDM specific support since the regulations were introduced in 2007. This included the provision of CDM Coordinator, a role in which we worked for a large number of our process industry clients, in addition to our expertise in HAZOP, HAZID and Functional Safety projects.”

“Following the changes to the regulations in 2015, however, and the resultant increasing demand for CDM advice and services within the process engineering and construction industries, HFL:CDM was set up not only for process engineering but also for general construction clients. This includes the provision of the all-important Principal Designer role.”

“Our experience within Process Engineering projects brings together the specialist knowledge of various engineering and construction disciplines required to understand the total project. However, where we might differ from other providers of such services, is that we are not just professional H&S providers but rather bring real, practical experience of large complex construction projects which enables us to dramatically reduce risk for our clients via tried and tested lean management principles. There are many firms offering resources which explain the new regulations but we are one of the few that has real multi-discipline expertise and experience to enable us to offer almost a ‘one-stop shop’ to the construction industry.”
