This article focuses on the Construction, (Design and Management) (CDM) health and safety rules for farm buildings in Great Britain. CDM regulations will be expanding their coverage from April 6, 2007. If a farmer employs more than one contractor and they are on the site at the same time, he now has a responsibility to ensure that they are not likely to pose a danger to each other, explains Tony Hutchinson of the Rural and Industrial Design and Building Association.
