If you are having construction work done on your own home, (e.g. a self build project) or on the home of a family member, as a domestic client you do not have to notify the work to Health and Safety Executive and you will not have duties under Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007 – although those doing the work on your behalf (such as designers or contractors) will.
Of course you have the normal duties of care which include making sure that the site is properly fenced in and has the appropriate notices displayed. See Site safety / Security
The HSE file Health and safety in construction covers all aspects of the subject
