Subcontractor Health and Safety Assessment Template

It is very likely that your organisation will need to use a contractor to carry out work. Our subcontractor Health and Safety assessment template is designed to provide all the information for them to carry out the required task safely and effectively. 

The importance of a Health and Safety assessment template for subcontractors

Contractors often work in workplaces with hazards that are unfamiliar to them which can include exposure to chemicals, asbestos, lead, and noisy or hot/cold conditions. 

Employees of the contracting organisation, or its client, may be at risk from the activities of a contractor, as could members of the public. Making sure all subcontractors go through a health & safety assessment will help you to give them some top-line information on how to reduce risks. 

Organisations that engage contractors and sub-contractors are responsible under Health and Safety Law to protect them from harm caused by company work activities. Similarly, contractors and sub-contractors must cooperate with the client and each other to ensure they do not do anything that puts themselves or others at risk.
