This course provides an understanding of the legal responsibilities of employers towards contractor personnel and of the processes that are necessary to manage these WHS obligations.  Employers are sometimes of the belief that if they use a contractor to perform a task they are absolving themselves of any WHS responsibilities.  This is not the case.

Who should attend?

Managers and supervisors responsible for the management of contractors in the workplace.
