You may use this online notification form to notify any project covered by the approved Code of Practice entitled: The Organisation and Management of Health and Safety in Construction, Part I Section 3. Follow this link for a printable PDF version of the form. [471kb].
The Principal Contractor is required to give the Health & Safety Executive 14 days' notice of all construction works on projects.
- Where the number of persons working on site (whether it be employees, subcontractors or self- employed contractors) exceeds 5 and the duration of the contract is more than 30 days.
- If the work involves demolition or dismantling of a structure regardless of duration or numbers on site.
- Where work is of short duration but is expected to involve at least 500 man-days of input.
The online form should be completed before any work (including demolition) commences, and as soon as possible after the safety co-ordinator is appointed to the project.
The form can be used by contractors working for domestic clients. In this case only parts 4-8 and 10 need to be filled in.
