Outsourcing is common practice in organisations. Despite the strategic importance of this decision the management of contractors is often ineffective, especially in relation to safety.
The session will challenge you to consider three key questions:
- what do contractors do for your organisation?
- how do they differ from your organisation?
- where do you put your effort when managing them?
We will address these three key questions demonstrating how the frameworks developed from IOSH-funded research can be applied in practice to achieve improvements in contractor safety performance.
