The critical challenge before the company management is to ensure the 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 the 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.

Contractor Safety Management has evolved significantly, yet it still has a long way to go, specifically with aligning safety expectations, programs, cultures, and strategies between contractors and the client organisations that engage them.

This workshop was conducted as an initiative to help the industry to improve the standards of their workplace safety.

This workshop provides a comprehensive overview of the fundamentals of contractor safety & health management and the challenges faced by some industries and how they are being addressed.

The workshop had important discussion on topics sharing best safety practices of contractor employees. The workshop was graced by eminent practicing professionals and thought leaders to share their views on important topics like Mr Rahul Guha (Former Director General – Directorate General of Mines Safety), Ms Smita Pandit (MD, Phoenix Conveyor Belt Pvt. Ltd), Mr Sandeep Fuller (Texmaco Rail & Engineering Ltd.), Dr Kalyanbrata Saha (Chief Health Director – South Eastern Railway), Mr Tapas Chakraborty (Regional HSE Head East- Shapoorji Pallonji & Co. Pvt. Ltd.).
