Keenan CDM achieves Acclaim (SSIP) Health & Safety Accreditation

Keenan CDM achieves Acclaim (SSIP) Health & Safety Accreditation

I’m pleased to announce that Anthony Keenan has achieved independent Acclaim (SSIP) Health & Safety Accreditation for the Keenan CDM Principal Designer service (Constructionline Reg 00388256).

This Acclaim Accreditation has been achieved via independent assessment and enables Keenan CDM to demonstrate compliance with health and safety legislation – in this instance, compliance with the CDM Regulations for the provision of Principal Designer services.

This demonstrates the Keenan CDM commitment to providing a comprehensive service via documented processes in line with the CDM Regulations requirements.


Keenan CDM Services – From 1st November 2018

After almost 30 years with my former firm, the latter 6 years as a Partner, I am leaving and establishing myself as an independent consultant under the Keenan CDM banner as of 1st November 2018.

This is in tandem with a relocation from Edinburgh to Aviemore to take better advantage outwith work of the fishing, hiking, biking and snowsport opportunities within the beautiful Cairngorms National Park.

However given my many links to Edinburgh and the fact I’ll still be in Edinburgh on a regular basis, I will be continuing to service Edinburgh, Lothians and surrounding areas as well as seeking new opportunities in Central, Fife, Tayside, Grampian and Highland areas.
