As a business you might be able to contract out the job but you can’t contract out your health and safety responsibilities. Under the Health and Safety at Work Act a business is responsible for taking care of the health and safety of employees and contractors on site.
SG World’s contractor management software, paper pass and template-based permit to work solutions all help businesses manage the potential risks inherent in working with contractors. Leaving a contractor to "just get on with it" isn't an option, you need to know where they are and what they are working on, adequately plan the job, consider the risks and exchange important information about your health and safety procedures.
