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.
