DELEGATING SAFETY?

Do the contractor safety practices at your workplace consist of reliance on contractual sign-offs in which the contractor agrees to be "fully responsible for compliance with all applicable health and safety legislation and standards"? Or do your practices consist of handing out a "contractor safety booklet" to all contractors upon hire? You may be surprised to learn that contracting out work, and such steps as contractual sign-offs and handing out booklets do not necessarily relieve you of responsibility for worker safety or of legal liability.
