Contractor Liability and Risk Management Solutions

Legal liability, arising from activities of third parties at a worksite, is one of the most difficult risk exposures to address and properly manage. Unless contractors are prequalified, trained, and proper coordination of safety activities is ensured, a company can face civil penalties from government safety agencies, tort liability arising from personal injury or wrongful death claims, and even criminal prosecution of company supervisors and upper management. In short, contractors may be the weakest link in the safety chain and it is critical to forge a partnership with those contractors and subcontractors who endeavor to perform work at a company’s facilities.
