DESCRIPTION

A new system has been implemented to evaluate contractors, with a questionnaire requesting company information and emergency contact details; health & safety and environmental awareness training information; details on proposed work and insurance details. It also requests a method statement and risk assessment which have to be supplied before work can commence, enabling the company to evaluate control methods. Education and training, where required, have been provided to contractors to help with this exercise.

Once on site, all contractors are subject to a documented site induction, covering all site hazards they need to be made aware of, employees on site and all environmental considerations. A permit to work is then completed. Where the supplied method statement and risk assessment do not fully cover all the activities, then a specific task risk assessment is completed and added to the permit to work. Once work has begun, an interim inspection is carried out to ensure all control measures are being adhered to.

BENEFITS

The new system has provided greater H&S and environmental awareness, ensuring the safety of both contractors and the company’s employees.
