Malcolm Shiels, senior health and safety consultant, is one of the first Faithful+Gould staff members nationally to gain entry onto the Association for Project Safety (APS) Register of CDM Co-ordinators, a nationally recognised body.
The Register has been established following the implementation of the high profile Construction Design and Management (CDM) regulations in April which have brought the regulations into a single, more user-friendly, regulatory package.
One of the key changes to the regulations includes the appointment of the CDM Co-ordinator who will be commissioned to advise the client on discharging their duties as well as managing the co-ordination of the safe design and planning of a project.
Malcolm who also heads up the Newcastle safety team, said:
“I am really passionate about my role and proud to become one of the first people in the UK to be gain entry to the APS. I will be encouraging more of colleagues to follow suit.
“Not only am I able to bring an enhanced insight into project safety to my team, but Faithful+Gould’s clients will also benefit as APS registration is an assurance that we have gone through a rigorous external process to demonstrate that we can deliver expertise on high risk and complex projects.”
