Which job roles is this course for:

This course is for all job roles within a vehicle workshop who may have interaction with any contractors coming on to site.

About this course:

Anyone engaging contractors has health and safety responsibilities, both for the contractors and anyone else that could be affected by their activities.

Everyone should understand the part they need to play in ensuring health and safety.

Use of contractors in itself does not result in poor health and safety standards, but poor management can lead to injuries, ill health, additional costs and delays.
