Maintenance contractor audit

When you delegate a job to a maintenance contractor you retain certain responsibilities for the health and safety of their work. Use our audit tool to review their management arrangements and working practices.

Why you need it

The primary duties you have as a client in relation to a maintenance contractor are to: (1) select a firm which can do the work competently; (2) agree safe methods of work; and (3) monitor that they are working safely, i.e. not putting themselves or others at risk.

By using our Maintenance Contractor Audit periodically, you can check that fundamental safety arrangements are in place, thereby minimising the risk of accidents and protecting your business.
