Our ability to simplify communications, alleviate experiences, engage and inspire compliance and fix a positive safety culture within an organisation is at the core of what we do.

With Embark, you have the opportunity to make your business safer, compliant, happier, healthier, and more efficient. Allowing you time to run your business.
Whether you are an operator, developer, principal designer, architect, client, or contractor, we have a CDM advisory service to suit; ranging from the standard solution to help you fulfill your CDM duties, to additional options, should you need them.
Embark Consulting has developed a range of services that help to discharge your duties and enhance Health and Safety during the construction, design, and management of your projects.
By working in partnership with your team and supporting your principal designers in their day‑to‑day role; providing expertise and knowledge.
Our solution offers independent and unbiased health and safety advice, that can be tailored to suit your needs.
Enabling flexibility through a range of solutions, and enables you to upgrade the service at any point throughout your project.
As a leading provider of Principal Designer Services, Embark Consulting undertakes the responsibility as a duty-holder to support the project from initial design through to completion. Our specialist CDM team has a wide range of project experience, including residential, commercial, domestic, infrastructure, and offshore energy. But no matter the size and scale of the project, we apply the same strategy and level of rigor to each one, ensuring all stakeholders are informed, competent, and working together in a collaborative way to ensure a safe and successful project is delivered.
The early appointment of your Principal Designer is key to your project's success. It ensures that we can help you during initial feasibility and planning designs to adopt the principles of prevention and safer by design, saving time and money over the project duration by minimising changes and notifying all duty and stakeholders of their scope responsibilities.
If your project design is already underway and perhaps into technical strategy, then that's not a problem either. We can step in at any stage and ensure that the project is safe by design and review any made in earlier stages that may need further review.
Our simple step-by-step approach allows the client to easily monitor and maintain the project delivery with frequent design team meetings and CDM workshops to identify, eliminate, and manage hazards in construction and future use and maintenance.
The revision of the CDM Regulations in 2015 created a new duty holder, the Principal Designer, with the remit to be responsible for the effective coordination of health and safety during the design / pre-construction phase.
The role of the Principal Designer is to ensure that the principles of prevention apply during this phase. With a focus on identifying and eliminating hazards, the reduction and control of residual risk (future use) arise from the design process.
The Principal Designer is not the lead designer; they are appointed by the client in the early design phase to ensure the duty-holders (Client & Principal Contractor) understand their legal duty and effectively communicate and cooperate between all parties designers/architects.
If a principal designer is not appointed on a commercial project, the duties come under the client's responsibilities and on domestic projects under the architect's duties.
Our Principal Designer Service is scalable to suit the requirements of your project. Our starting point is to ensure you meet legal compliance and adopt best practices, but the complexity of your project dictates the level of detail required.
We support various projects, from small residential developments to large-scale commercial builds and technical engineering projects such as power generation, offshore wind farms, and nuclear.
No matter the size of your project, whether it's domestic or commercial/large or small, we can support you.
The first important step is to appoint a Principal Designer as early as possible, typically in the very early design or RIBA Stage for residential projects.
Fire Risk Assessment
Embarks trusted fire consultants, conduct comprehensive Fire Risk Assessments to ensure legal compliance on an extensive range of commercial buildings, and ensure compliance with current Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 legislation and fire safety in the workplace.
As an employer (and/or building owner or occupier), you are legally required to carry out and maintain a fire safety risk assessment.
Embark's comprehensive fire safety assessments are carried out either as a separate exercise or as part of a single risk assessment covering other health and safety risks.
Based on the assessment findings, duty holders must ensure that adequate and appropriate fire safety measures are met to minimize the risk of injury or loss of life in the event of a fire.
Therefore, as part of the Fire Risk Assessment, we provide a management fire policy supported by an in-depth maintenance and inspection program essential for all businesses with commercial properties.
Regular Fire Risk Assessments are good business sense as well as a legal requirement.
All too often, businesses are devastated by fire. Therefore, successful fire prevention starts with accurately understanding all the potentially life-threatening risks.
Embark's Fire safety systems are designed to help safeguard people and property and to mitigate risk and prevent loss of life or assets in the event of a fire breaking out.
