Construction Regulations for Contractors


The Minister of Labour has issued guidelines to the Construction Regulations 2014, which was published on 2 June 2017. The guidelines are available for download from various sources including the IWH Professional Body and Department of Labor sites. The guidelines have made it easier to implement the regulations because it clarifies some of the areas of confusion and misinterpretation. It is, however still one of the major causes for delays in the construction industry. Contractors submitting safety files without an understanding of these regulations often end up having to wait several days before the files are approved and in the process loose productivity and money.

The contractor who engages with major organisations have to make peace with the fact that they will always need a Health and Safety Plan, and the plan will have to be implemented, maintained and handed over to the client on completion of the job.
