ESSA, AEO & AEV reveal CDM Roadshow dates

Industry associations ESSA, AEO and AEV have revealed dates for a series of CDM Roadshows, as part of their cross-association initiative to drive towards minimal impact from CDM regulations.

The events are being organised to provide advice, guidance and support for those wishing to achieve compliance with the new Construction and Design Management (CDM) Regulations.

The first roadshow will take place at Piazza Suites 1 & 2 at the NEC on Thursday 21 May 2015, and a second is planned for June 9 at London’s Olympia.

Attendees will hear from a panel of industry experts, H&S consultants and association representatives who have played a major part in CDM regulations in the events industry.

Membership of all three associations is invited to attend as are non-members.

ESSA director, Andrew Harrison said: “The morning roadshow aims to bring attendees up to date with regard to CDM2015, its effect on our industry across all key stakeholders, what you need to understand to be compliant and how we have moved to help prepare the industry for these new regulations.

“More importantly, it will provide attendees with the opportunity to engage with the panel and have all of their questions answered. Attendees will also receive stakeholder specific guidance, for example, what does an organiser/venue/stand builder/main contractor/exhibitor need to do and to take this back to their businesses.”

Harrison added that there will also be information regarding future CDM management tools that will be made available via the three associations, including a mobile and web based application for the management of CDM, including CDM compliant documentation/templates for the submission of Construction Phase Plans and RAMS.

The CDM Roadshow is a free to attend event for members of ESSA, the AEV and the AEO, with a small charge of £50 per delegate applicable to non-members wishing to attend. Each event has limited numbers and places will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

A venue and date in the north of England will also be announced shortly.
