The Importance of Contractor and Supplier Safety Management

Integrating contractors and suppliers into your comprehensive health and safety strategy is essential for several reasons:

Shared Responsibility for Safety: Employers and contractors share legal responsibility for ensuring a safe work environment. By effectively managing contractor safety, you can minimise the risk of incidents and legal liabilities.

Protecting Your Reputation: Accidents involving contractors can tarnish your company's reputation and erode stakeholder trust. A robust contractor safety program demonstrates your commitment to safety and protects your brand image.

Preventing Workplace Disruptions: Accidents involving contractors can disrupt operations, causing delays, financial losses, and hindering productivity. Effective contractor safety management ensures smooth operations and minimises downtime.

MAKROSAFE helps you understand and implement the 37.2 Agreement effectively, ensuring clear communication, shared responsibility, and accountability for safety performance.
