Contractor Safety Management
Nearly every business utilizes contractors in some capacity. Just like with other business relationships, contractor interactions can be complicated.
Due diligence requires that employers have a documented process in place to:
- ensure adequate control of contractual activities; and
- minimize the risks of an incident that results in injury, damage or liability to either the employer or the contractor.
So when it comes to developing and maintaining a Health and Safety Management Program, Contractor Safety Management is essential. The purpose of this Share & Learn session will be to discuss and understand the safety responsibilities inherent in any contractor interaction. This will include discussion of what constitutes a contractor for the purpose of your Occupational Health and Safety Management System as well as how to structure your Contractor Management Program to reduce liability and identify any safety issues.
