About the course
In many companies, contractors work 50%+ of the hours in the field. That is why it is important to prequalify, select, mobilize, execute, demobilize, and close out contracted activities to a high standard. An effective relationship between clients and contractors at all stages of the supply chain is essential for competently managing health and safety in a facility or project.

In just five-days, you will learn the processes for developing and managing a contractor safety management system based on recognized management systems, such as API Recommended Practice 2220 'Contractor Safety Performance Process' and OGP 'Guidelines for Working together in Contracting Environment.' The course includes knowledge development sessions, practical exercises and problem-solving set in a case study setting. The course concludes with a contractor pre-qualification, selection, and justification exercise.
Designed For
Project, procurement, and supply chain managers, HSE specialists, auditors, engineers, and supervisors who want to know how to manage contractors.
