NEW tools to simplify Contractor Management

As a building company, you’re responsible for the H&S of everyone on-site, not just your direct employees. We know that getting contractors involved in H&S is a big challenge for building companies and is exposing you to additional risk.

Of course, building companies often tell us that although they have some influence over contractors on-site, getting them to engage with health and safety is a challenge, as they don’t have the same level of control over contractors compared to direct staff. Too often, contractors arrive on-site without an established H&S system and need a lot of support from the main contractor. If they do have their own system it creates a paperwork nightmare for the building company that is responsible for ensuring reports are completed and collected.  

What does good contractor management look like?

First, you need to make sure contractors have the right skills and experience to do the job, and second, you need to make sure they are going to carry out the work safely. Once they are onboard, you need to monitor throughout the build if the contractor is following good health and safety practices on-site.


We’ve created a number of new tools that will help you to manage your contractors before they begin working with you and while they are on-site. We’ve also made it easier to monitor your contractor’s H&S activity, even when you’re in the office. It’s one system for everyone. 

How does it work? 

Pre-site – Do your homework before you start working with contractors to reduce the risk to your business 

  • Simple pre-qualification – Hit one button to start the pre-qualification process with a new contractor. From there, they will automatically be sent a questionnaire requesting all the information and documents you need, including public liability insurance, a policy and procedures document, and evidence they follow good H&S practices on-site. 
  • Automated reminders to save you time – If your contractors don’t respond, they will receive email reminders until they complete the process.  You will get a notification when the documentation is ready to check and approve. No more chasing contractors and long no more long email chains. 

On-site – Love the HazardCo app? Now contractors can use it too. One H&S tool for everyone under one roof 

  • One system for everyone – From employees to contractors, everyone on-site will be able to use the HazardCo app to complete H&S reports such as site reviews, task analysis, incident reports, and more. Workers can collaborate on safety by creating and assigning tasks. you’ll know everyone has guided, easy-to-use tools at the ready to manage H&S on-site. All reports will be shared with you. And they will get a copy for their own records too. Finally, kill paperwork on-site. 
  • Unauthorised worker notification – If a worker scans onto a site that hasn’t been approved yet, you’ll get a notification. So unless you hear otherwise, you can be sure everyone on-site is good to go.

Oversight – Get the big picture view of all H&S activity taking place  

  • Monitor H&S activity with dashboards – You’ll be able to see all H&S activity at a project or company level. For the first time, you will have full visibility of all H&S activity taking place on-site, from employees to contractors.  
  • Create a record of good health and safety practices over time – All reports created on-site will be automatically sent to you and stored for safe keeping. Say goodbye to paperwork and filing. 

Managing your contractors and ensuring their safety on-site is non-negotiable, so make it simpler, and let our digital and automated tools do the heavy lifting.
