The HSE has published a short guide for clients on CDM 2015, aimed at building owners, users or managing agents having maintenance, small-scale building work or other minor works carried out in connection with a business.

It has also produced a list of essential points for builders working for a domestic client as the only contractor, or the principal contractor, on planning and organising the project and working with others involved to ensure the work is carried out without risks to health and safety. There is also a blank template for recording the construction phase plan.
