For over 20 years of working within the construction industry we’ve seen your problems of never having enough time for your designs never mind the management of CDM and Health & Safety risks within the design process or having someone to turn to for advice on the latest Construction Health & Safety knowledge.

The CDM Regulations has changed markedly over the years with HSE placing a bigger focus on ‘designers and designer duties’.

A designer must be able to demonstrate they have the health and safety skills, knowledge and experience (SKE), and the capability, to carry out the work they are being appointed for.

We have worked with lots of architects over the years by offering bespoke services and solutions to their problems.

Are you tired of completing design risk assessments, tired of worrying about a HSE visit to site and them conducting a ‘track-back’ investigation leading to a potential failure of your Designer duties under CDM?

You can be safe and compliant using Salus as your CDM Advisers or Principal Designers.
