What is a Construction Phase Plan?
A Construction Phase Plan is a key document that details the health and safety risks associated with the construction phase of the project and the control measures that will be implemented to minimise risks or, where possible, eliminate them.
What does a Construction Phase Plan include?
To cover all the necessary legal requirements, a construction phase plan generally includes:
- A project description
- Management of the work
- Arrangements for controlling significant site risks
- The health and safety file
- Significant design and construction hazards
When do you need a Construction Phase Plan, and is it legally required?
All construction projects, no matter the size or duration, are legally required to have a Construction Phase Health and Safety Plan.
If a project is classed as construction work, you’ll need a Construction Phase Plan — Construction work is classified if it involves demolition, renovation, maintenance, or repair of a structure. If you are working on domestic projects, a Construction Phase Plan is also required.
