What can happen if I do not follow the CDM Regulations?

The HSE have taken a strong stance of breaches in the CDM regulations as with other Health and Safety infringements and due to a change in the sentencing guidelines introduced in November 2018 an organisation can be fined up to 10% of its gross annual turnover and in extreme cases where a person dies and a case of gross negligence or corporate manslaughter is brought, a person (including directors) could now face a maximum prison sentence of 18 years depending on their level of culpability.
