Background

EDP provided CDM advisory support for a national power distribution organisation. As the appointed CDM advisor for all projects, our role was crucial in ensuring that health and safety considerations were integrated into the design, planning and construction phases of the project.

Projects completed involved reviewing safety documentation, managing high-risk work activities and ensuring effective communication among designers. Our role encompassed reviewing pre-construction information, construction phase plans and principal contractor’s risk assessment and method statements (RAMS), as well as overseeing key design risk management procedures.

The project work involved drilling operations, lifting operations, working at height and within confined spaces. Given the inherent risks associated with these activities, robust safety management, regulatory compliance and adherence to CDM regulations were paramount.
