Outsourcing is usually the way of conducting non-core business functions such as corrective and preventive maintenance.


Maintenance work involves a wide range of activities and thus maintenance workers are exposed to many ill health and safety risks. Scientific studies suggest that occupational diseases and ill health are most common among maintenance workers.

A company that employs maintenance subcontractors own a duty – in terms of health and safety – to all its contractors doing work for the company. Additionally, the company owns a duty to all those affected by its contractors’ activities, when carrying out work for their behalf. Contractors themselves also have legal health and safety responsibilities.

Outsourcing external service providers does not automatically result in poor health and safety standards, but poor subcontractors’ management can lead to injuries, ill health, equipment damage, additional costs and delays.

Working closely with contractors will reduce occupational incidents and associated costs, potential damages and loss direct and indirect costs.

Effective management practices can significantly improve health and safety of maintenance contractors’ activities.

Process Engineering is able to support your business effectively in the safety management of maintenance contractors by:

  • Setting a robust and tailored made subcontractors management procedure
  • Specific subcontractors training sessions on the job and on your premises
  • Effective use of all available communication means to communicate health and safety provisions and requirements
  • Second party audits
