Managing Contractors (Including Permit to Work Systems)
Contractor management is not only important with respect to contractual and commercial obligations but essential when maintaining a safe working environment. Health and safety law requires that client organisations ensure a safe working environment for their employees, and those of other employers working on their premises, sites or in their name.
In the unfortunate event of an accident involving a contractor, questions will be asked of both the client and the contractor regarding how the safety of those activities were managed.
This half day course is designed for management and supervisors with responsibilities for the control and assessment of contractors.
