Join us on Wednesday 20 October 2021 for the North West Sydney and Central Coast safety group meeting 

Topic: Contractor Safety: How much is too much?

In this session, we will focus on:

How much influence and control is reasonable when managing contractor health and safety?

This webinar will outline obligations, threats and opportunities when managing contractor health and safety. Often organisations struggle to understand the right balance with:

•            Compliance vs culture

•            One size fits all vs a tailored approach

•            How much to give vs our much to get.

Contractor management can be complex and a burden for multiple stakeholders if not deployed effectively. Conversely, simplifying contractor management based on risk can provide huge amounts of opportunity to reduce compliance burdens, effectively engage stakeholders, and build high performing cultures.

Key takeaways:

•            Different types of contractors

•            Segmenting contractors

•            Collaborating with contractors

•            Measuring contractor safety performance.
