Subcontractor Assessment

Many small businesses subcontractor out work when either the work requires specialist work or it is simply cheaper to do so, but what many businesses do not understand is that if the subcontractor has or causes a serious accident they may be found liable for appointing the contractor.

This is why assessing subcontractors is a vitally important process for all businesses large or small.

Peterborough Safety Consultants have developed a simply questionnaire which is to be completed by any potential subcontractors which assesses the business as a whole for its stability, structure, quality and health and safety systems.

Using this process businesses may be compared and assessed for suitability prior to issuing contracts and hence fulfilling its obligations.
