‘Managing contractors’ is built around current guidance from the HSE. The course will help you to ensure the safety of your staff and others when contractors are working on your premises. ‘Managing contractors’ is presented by a Chartered Safety Practitioner with significant experience of practical safety management and is highly regarded by all clients.
Failure to appoint competent, safe contractors may lead to serious incidents. These can cost your organisation a great deal of time and money. Having an effective contractor management system helps to avoid these losses. Effective contractor management helps to ensure that tasks are completed on time, on budget and with minimal disruption.
The chances are that our trainer will have faced similar contractor management issues to those you currently face, so can share their thoughts and experience to help you to work out a solution. This will help make the workplace safe for all concerned.
Typical problems faced by organisations include:
- how to select contractors to ensure safety
- how to verify a contractor’s health and safety record
- how to monitor contractors’ safety, and
- how to be sure that enough has been done to appoint competent and safe contractors.
Delegates will receive sensible, pragmatic advice on the above. Discussion of your current contractor management issues is encouraged.
