Contractor Safety File's
Contractors constantly challenge the auditing/vetting processes such as site-specific safety requirements and the requirements and contents of the so-called safety file in which the employer grants his/her authorization to perform work on-site. Inevitably, these challenges should fail to the order of 90%. Meaning that 9 out of 10 challenges should fail, if not, the employer should see it as a warning signal reflecting a poor company vetting or auditing process. Helivac Health and Safety Solutions develops site safety files for contractors or service providers in order to comply with the construction regulation to perform work on-site.
