Managing contractors is a guide for small to medium-sized companies in the chemical industry, but it will also be of use to other industries and larger companies.

Safe working with contractors presents a challenge, but being a smaller company has its advantages. You can be more flexible in your approach and decisions can be made more quickly. Lines of communication are shorter, usually there are not too many people involved and it is easier to know who is around.

In this guidance we aim to help you understand what you need to do and give sound practical advice for action. Working together helps everyone to work safely.

This second edition brings guidance and references up to date.
