It is a common misconception that when contractors work on your premises or site, you have no management control over their activities. This is not the case. Health & safety law requires the client organisation to have some responsibility for contractor's activities. Should an accident involving a contractor ever occur at your premises, then questions will be asked of you, the contractor and the contractors' employer regarding how their activities were managed. This comprehensive one-day programme includes: -
1. How to provide a safe place of work for the contractors
2. How to ensure that your own employees are not put at risk from the actions of a contracted contractor
3. Ensure that your employees do not act in a manner which may endanger the safety of contractors
4. Providing the contractor with information on the hazards and risks throughout the area where they will be conducting their work
5. Monitoring contractor's activities whilst on your premises
6. Signing in procedures and basic induction including familiarisation with your organisation's rules and Health and Safety Policy
