These Regulations originally came in to place in 1994 and then were heavily revised in 2007 when the regulations were brought together with the Construction (Health Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1996. The purpose of this review is to both further understand the CDM Regulations and investigate why accidents in construction are still occurring by looking at the following possibilities: • Are the Regulations being understood? • Are the Regulations being followed? • Are the Regulations being enforced? • Are workers taking responsibility for their actions? This project will focus on Glasgow based construction projects purely due time constraints and practicality issues and looking at the regulations for contractors. . According to HSE (2013)
