Priority 1 works with organizations wanting to be assured of the standards of the health and safety coordinator or their contractors. Safety and health programs are designed to prevent workplace injuries, illnesses, and deaths, as well as the suffering and financial hardship they can cause. By protecting your workers, you reduce absences, ensuring that your workplace is more efficient and productive. We also work with contractors wishing to improve their health and safety management systems.
Priority 1 can provide information and assistance regarding the health and safety issues which need to be considered by companies when working with contractors. We can help ensure that only contractors with the correct insurance, proper risk controls and intention to work in a safe manner are being awarded contracts or being allowed to work with your clients. In order to assess contractors’ suitability, we will engage them in a qualification process. This involves answering questions and providing evidence of experience, accident investigation, risk assessment, training and structures to ensure safe working methods.
We also work with many contractors and sub-contractors who are striving to meet the desired standards of health and safety control. Priority 1 works to assist contractors of all sizes to prepare policy statements, devise procedural systems, risk assess their activities, and help with all other aspects of developing a robust and widely accepted health and safety management system.
We currently work with contractors from a wide range of disciplines including electrical contractors, fire and security system installers, maintenance organisations and companies providing hygiene services.
