A crucial factor for the efficient execution of a project

Construction projects are a sector where health & safety risks are particularly high. This is largely due to the nature of the work being carried out but also to the difficulties of coordination between the stakeholders involved (contractors, subcontractors, self-employed, employees, etc.).


Managing contractors and subcontractors is a complex process since even a small technical project may involve a significant number of contractors/subcontractors.

Management difficulties are also exacerbated by the different levels of technical competence and health & safety awareness of each contractor. 

Effective health & safety management requires a collaborative relationship between all parties and a collective commitment to achieving the performance goals of the health & safety system.

Employment relationships will be greatly improved by clearly defining roles, duties and responsibilities. Interactive communication between all parties is vital to ensuring an effective working relationship.

In order to be effective in managing contractors/subcontractors, it is important to have adequate preparation in safety management level, which should include:

  • Assessing their adequacy before selecting them.

  • Clear contractual requirements for health & safety provisions to be applied during the construction phase.

  • Inspection prior the commencement of their operations.

  • Monitoring of health & safety measures during project implementation.

Process Engineering can effectively support your business by taking over:

  • The development of a contractor/subcontractor health & safety assessment process (can be combined with quality and technical adequacy assessment) in line with project requirements and objectives.

  • The selection process, in accordance with the selection criteria decided in the subcontractor health & safety assessment process.

  • The establishment of contractual health & safety requirements.

  • The development and implementation monitoring of the project’s Health & Safety Plan, which will include control procedures and auditing of contractors/subcontractors during the project.

  • The health & safety performance assessment of the contractors/subcontractors.

  • Safety Coordinator and Safety Engineer Services.
