‘Managing contractors’ will help you to ensure the safety of your staff and others when contractors are working on your premises. The course is presented by a Chartered Safety Practitioner with over 20 years’ experience of practical safety management.
Failure to appoint competent, safety-conscious 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 reduce these losses. Managing contractors effectively also helps to ensure that tasks are completed on time, on budget and with minimal disruption.

Typical problems faced by organisations include:
