    Employers need to have vetting controls in place to assess contractors’ competencies for health, safety and environmental management. As an employer, you may need to show how effective your control system for the management of contractors is if something goes wrong.

    • Employers need to be confident that contractors have suitable and sufficient insurance cover for the work they will carry out.

    • Employers also need to ensure that contractors have suitable and sufficient risk assessments and a method statement for their activities.

    • Additionally, employers should check up on the contractors’ accident statistics and whether they have received any formal notices from enforcing authorities.

    The importance of controlling contractors mainly relates to physical work such as building work, maintenance work and working at height. Even window-cleaning work is included. It is particularly relevant to fire safety systems. There had been numerous cases of fires starting on sites because hot work carried out by contractors has not been sufficiently observed or safely controlled.

    There are a huge range of questions employers could reasonably ask a contractor before they start on site.  Absolute Health and Safety Solutions Ltd advise employers to find out what these questions are, and to not be afraid to ask them
