Why is Contractor Management Important for Safety?
Many business operations require the help and engagement of contractors. While this is a common practice, hiring outside contractors and subcontracts can pose inherent risks for your business and employees.
When contractors perform duties in your workplace, they are also required to follow safe work practices and comply with WHS legislation, as they become part of your Company responsibility. If your contractors fail to meet safety requirements, they can pose significant risks and incur costly consequences to your company, compromising the safety of your workplace and employees.
What can you do?
Implementing a Contractor Management System can safeguard your work environment and help your business remain compliant.
If you already have a Safety Management System, this will provide a systematic approach to identify hazards and manage the risks associated with that hazard. In addition, a Contractor Management System will assess and manage your contractors to ensure that they are qualified, insured, and WHS compliant. Including:
* collecting and assessing contractor documentation,
* checking qualifications,
* required licenses,
* relevant insurances,
* meeting WHS obligations,
* induction process (through online portal)
* approval and certificate of compliance to your company
