Webinar: Contractor management - the key to compliance


FREE event

Health and safety management in the food and drink industry has made considerable improvements over the last 20 years and has seen a 60% reduction in injuries since 1990. The approach to safety management has evolved and has seen the development of priority areas that individuals with a responsibility for safety have to consider which can vary from machinery safety to slips, trips and falls or occupational health issues such dermatitis, asthma or noise induced hearing loss. However have you considered the additional impacts or affects the regular use of contractors can have on your day to day activities and health and safety priorities?

The use of contractors within the food manufacturing industry is common place. They are an essential extension to the normal workforce and help ensure that the equipment, plant and facilities used by a food manufacturing business are kept up and running.

Find out your responsibilities for ensuring the health and safety capability of any contractors that you have engaged to undertake work at any of your sites and how asking the right questions can help determine their suitability to work alongside your existing health and safety initiatives.
