Contractor selection policy

Contractor selection policy

There are various legal requirements which apply to the appointment of contractors. In particular, you need to take reasonable steps to check that they are able to do the work safely. Our Contractor Selection Policy will help you to implement the right arrangements.

Legal requirements

This policy has been created to ensure compliance with an employer’s common law duty to appoint only competent contractors, as well as specific requirements within the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 and the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 (CDM).

 

What does it include?

It sets out your general position on contractor management, who is responsible for implementing the policy and detailed contractor assessment procedure, including both small and large projects. It also outlines how an approved list should be used.

 

Adapt the policy to suit your own arrangements, including completion of names and job titles where prompted.
