Making your business more attractive to potential customers can seem a difficult job. The hard work and quality service you provide should be for everyone to see. However, standing out from the pack can be tricky.
Appointing LCS, who have proven their Health and Safety credentials, gives clients piece of mind they are making the right choice in appointing you.
After successfully passing an independent Health and Safety assessment, organisations such as CHAS, SafeContractor, Acclaim and SMAS can provide you with the nationally recognised certification your company will need to demonstrate you are carrying out your legal duties which in return will grow your business.
Such certification can be used during your contract tendering stages and can even be a prerequisite for starting any contracts with some of the larger national contractors & councils.
We will help you in all the aspects of Health and Safety management to achieve successful accreditation. Taking you through every stage of the pre-qualification process, we will ensure that your registration forms are completed carefully.
Legislation places duties on employers and organisations when appointing contractors, including the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974, The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999. The Occupiers’ Liability Acts 1957 (common law duties to visitors) and 1984 (duties to trespassers), further The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 (CDM).
Our framework to oversee contractor management can be broken down into levelled phases:
It is essential that any organisation appointing external contractors has a robust process in place for appointing and managing.
Following any incident it will be necessary for the ‘client’ to evidence the steps and controls they have taken to identify and appoint ‘competent’ contractors and the processes they have in place to continue to manage effectively.
Some of the potential issues when appointing contractors can include:
A client’s contractor safety management process must be designed to manage the risk that contract works introduce into an organisations’ operations.
It is critical that the organisation understands how to manage these types of arrangements and any client should have a defined procedure within their safety management system that defines the minimum requirements for contracted services.

We cover, the legal obligations in management of contractors. Contractor challenges, what needs to be in place, how to select a good contractor, PQQ process, reviewing risk assessments, exceptions, assessing performance and on going management.
