Contractor Management

 

Do contractors under your control have the correct safety processes, insurances, qualifications and training to be working at your place of work?

Contractor Management

Just like an employee you need to ensure a safe place of work for the contractor and also make sure that they have the appropriate qualifications, safe work procedures and most important all the relevant insurances, licences and permits. Hiring an unqualified or uninsured contractor can lead to massive repercussions for your business if something goes wrong.

How Online WHS makes managing
Contractors easy!

The Online WHS Contractor Module allows you to send the contractor an email with a link that links into a four step compliance portal that the contractor can then enter their employees or sub-contractors, their qualifications, safe work method statements, workers compensation, public liability and other insurances. It also allows you to set up automatic email alerts for the contractor to receive when their insurances or qualifications are expiring.
