New Construction Regulations 2013

The New Construction Regulations came into effect on August 1st.  Delegates attending this seminar will hear the main changes to the regulations and the impacts that these changes will have on them.

A full and comprehensive review has been carried out on the current Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Construction Regulations 2006 to 2010, to identify revisions and reduce the regulatory and administrative burdens imposed on all clients in construction while not diminishing workplace health and safety standards.

The purpose of these regulations is to prescribe the main requirements for the protection of the safety, health and welfare of persons working on construction sites and to give further effect to Council Directive 92/57/EEC (the Directive) on the minimum safety and health requirements at temporary or mobile construction sites.


Paraig Earley, Inspector, Health and Safety Authority [Sligo and Dublin seminar]
Paraig is an inspector with the Health and Safety Authority who is involved in developing the new Construction Regulations. He will outline the requirement of this new Regulation and how it differs from the 2006 Regulations. He will also address other construction issues.
