Leadership Challenges in Managing Contractor Induced Risk at Workplace | CII-Consultivo Knowledge Report
Published on April 2017 | Knowledge Bank | Safety
The knowledge report was launched at the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), Eastern Region Workshop on 21st April, 2017 (Read more about the event).
This knowledge report emphasises on the fact that, the critical challenge before any company management is to ensure safe execution of projects by external contract workers. No company can perform well unless the safety performances of the contractors are well managed. Even legally the principal employer is held responsible for any kind of incidents at the contractor site. The challenge seems to be even more daunting as the contractor is an external entity and may not be in sync with safety policy or culture of the company. The contractor usually brings his own equipment, own people with unknown habits and sometimes new methods into a company’s premises which can become potential hazards to health and safety.
The best way to overcome this challenge is to create and establish a robust Contractor Safety Management system in the organisation.
This knowledge report provides a coverage of various topics such as the Occupational Health & Safety Management System for Contractors’ Management, an analysis of the data as a result of the Contractor Safety Management Survey, areas to improve based on the result of the survey, the essential elements required for a safe workplace, Business Risk Management and the ways to monitor and review the health & safety performance of the Contractors.
Safety is for all. There’s no confidentiality in it. This is an initiative by Consultivo to spread awareness, motivation & specialised knowledge. Consultivo aims to empower people enabling loss prevention.
