BMC Training provides on 5 Dec 2021 Control Of Contractors course [Facilities Management Training] in London,UK


If your organisation manages contractors then your staff need to understand the health and safety issues. This course is the answer.

The expert trainer will set out clearly the legal responsibilities of all relevant parties and explore the practical application of these responsibilities with the course participants. The course will then examine the issues associated with the planning of work to be contracted out and the evaluation, selection, control and monitoring of contractors engaged to undertake the work. Although the main focus is on health and safety, the course will also explain how health and safety issues need to be integrated into your organisation’s functional management processes to ensure effective control of contractors.
