The Seminar's main focus is to help delegates to understand the New Construction Design and Management Regulations 2015 and how they effect any businesses who need construction work completed.

The joint seminar is hosted by the Bradford Area Occupational Health and Safety Forum and the Enterprise Europe Network on the theme of 'Healthy Workplaces - Managing Stress' within the construction industry.

The seminar will look at explaining the implications of the CDM Regulations and providing practical solutions on how these Regulations may be put into practice.

The speakers will provide an interpretation of the Regulations, how this effects contractor safety on site and the clients responsibilities.
