Control of Contractors

Overview

Does your business work with contractors? While they might follow a slightly different set of rules, their health and safety is just as important as that of company employees, so you need to protect it.

To begin with, you’ll need to verify that they have the proper training and expertise to carry out the job that needs to be done. And before you set contractors to work, you must be sure you’re taking the right measures to avoid or mitigate any risks they might be exposed to. This course will help to explain those risks.
