Industrial Manslaughter and Contractor Management

A topic grabbing everyone’s attention at the moment is industrial manslaughter and as always fear is in the air. Principal Contractors may think the best course of action is to take more control of contractors operations when the opposite is needed. The more control you take the more liability you have.

Make sure your contractors understand they are responsible for their own safety. Focus your efforts on your own operations. Identify your critical risks i..e where a contractor could die because of your actions. Make sure you manage those risks as a priority.
