Managing Construction

Construction work takes place throughout the Forestry Commission’s business and ranges from very large projects such as road construction or building a new visitor centre, to minor works such as road drainage or redecorating a forest office.

The management of health and safety within construction is vital and should follow the terms of the CDM Regulations 2007 and the Approved Code of Practice (ACOP). The aim of this booklet is help Forestry Commission staff recognise which areas of work are classed as construction and provide guidance on how to safely manage both the works and the staff involved.
