Construction - health and safety file checklist

Construction health and safety file checklist

A health and safety file is required for construction projects involving more than one contractor and is a specific requirement of the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015.  Our checklist explains what should be included.

Who creates the health and safety file?

The file is drawn together by the principal designer (PD) and the client must oversee that this happens. The information comes from all of the designers and contractors involved in the project.

If the PD appointment ends before the project has finished, the principal contractor must take over and complete the health and safety file. It is handed to the client on completion who must retain it and ensure it’s available to anyone who needs it. It must also be given to any new owner.

What does our document cover?

The checklist is useful for any party involved in construction work who either needs to submit information for the construction health and safety file or who needs to collate the file itself. It’s also handy for clients who may wish to check that they have received all the necessary information before they settle the final bills.

The checklist lists all of the areas to be covered. It also explains what information is not to be included, such as method statements for the work carried out.
