Training Course Information
For many organisations, contractors provide a cost-effective way of delivering jobs across construction, demolition, installation, repairs and/ or maintenance. But while a contractor is not a permanent employee, your organisation still has a responsibility to make sure each and every one of your contractors understands their responsibilities, especially when it comes to ensuring a healthy and safe workplace.
Despite a strong focus on recent year on health and safety, there are still hundreds of accidents each year, many of which involve contractors. According to the UK Health and Safety Executive, figures for 2014/15 show 142 workers killed at work, 76,000 employee injuries reported under RIDDOR and 27.3 million working days lost due to work-related illness and workplace injury.
Contractor Safety eLearning course provides contractors with the information they need to identify and minimise potential dangers that can exist within a workplace. The online course highlights the duties and responsibilities of the contractor, as well as your organisation, to ensure a healthy and safe working environment. It also outlines the code of behaviour necessary to reduce accidents in the workplace.
The course has been designed to cover specific areas, including the importance of effective communication between contractor, organisation, other workers and the general public; safety equipment, including what to wear; the use of any special equipment; and security and emergency procedures.
The course will give you, and your contractors, the tools you need to work safely, minimise risks and promote good practice.
