The Health and Safety Consultant keeping small business safe

Health and Safety for Subcontractors                               

Subcontractors Obligations

Sub contractors have the same health and safety obligations as all employers. Even self-employed subcontractors have the obligation to ensure that they are working safely, are protecting themselves from harm and protecting anyone who may be affected by their work.

But it can be difficult being a subcontractor, particulary if you are being asked for paperwork on some jobs and not on others; you are being asked to fit in with the Client's health and safety policies rather than your own or you have to fill in endless forms before you can even start the job.

We understand those problems and we are here to take the pain out of the paperwork. Contact us and we will talk through with you ways in which you can manage your health and safety going-forward so as to cut down on needless time-wasting and form-filling and at the same time, ensure that you and your employees are safe and your legal obligations are met.

If you have more than 5 employees then the pricing will reflect the greater complexity of your business.
