Contractor Safety

The use of contractors is common place in most organisations, often seen as a way of buying in expertise as well as providing additional resources in peak times. While contractors provide organisations with flexibility in the way they work, it also introduces another layer of risk where the organisation has less control over individuals and yet they still retain an OHS liability for this group which is often not realised or managed.


To ensure organisations don’t lose the flexibility they have in using contractors, WSP have developed a full suite of services to give clients the peace of mind, that this risk exposure is effectively managed to deliver on required business outcomes.  Whether you wish to purchase just one component, or the full suite, WSP can provide a management system solution that is tailored to your needs.
