CDM 2015 more than one contractor
There is no definition of what ‘more than one contractor’ means, but it is generally considered that this includes trade contractors and situations where it is reasonably anticipated there will be more than one contractor at any time.
This is a significant change from the 2007 regulations which required that co-ordinators were appointed on projects that lasted more than 30 days or involved 500 person days of construction work. The Health and Safety Executive believe that changing the threshold will capture close to an additional 1 million projects a year, but suggest that the requirements are proportionate and little more work will be necessary.
