Construction phase plan
What do you need to know?
Under the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 a construction phase plan is required for every construction project, which is foreseeable that more than one contractor will be working on the site.
The construction phase plan does not have to be lengthy or complex, but it is essential that it sets out how you will plan, organise and work together during the project.
Who should prepare the Construction Phase Plan?
The preparation of construction phase plan should be prepared by the Contractor (or the Principal Contractor if there is more than one contactor on site).
What should the Construction Phase Plan include?
In considering what information is included, but is not limited to, the following:
- A description of the project, members of the project team and start / end dates.
- Health, safety and welfare management arrangements for the project.
- Specific site rules.
- Special measures needed to manage the project.
- Welfare arrangements.
- Site induction.
- Fire and emergency arrangement.
There is no value of having a comprehensive construction phase plan, if it is not communicated to all involved parties.
