Contractor Safety Management


Inefficient, incomplete or inconsistent contractor management practices greatly increase the risk of costly delays, mistakes, and hazards to health, safety, equipment and the environment. At worst, they can lead to serious injury or fatality of workers and an irrevocably damaged corporate reputation. This online course on Contractor Management Systems will help companies reduce their risks by hiring the right contractor or service provider to do the job with the right equipment and the right plan in place to ensure safe, efficient work practices. These guidelines apply to all types of projects undertaken by small and medium companies in different sectors. Investing the time and effort required to adopt an industry consistent contractor management system makes good business sense.

This course is based on British guidelines and level of knowledge in this course is equivalent to NVQ/RQF level 3.
