At NABEL we understand only too well the need to use Contractors for maintenance, repairs, installation, construction, demolition and many other jobs – it is probably routine in your company. But many accidents involve contractors working on site. Sometimes you may have more than one contractor on site. You need to think about how their work may affect each other and how they interact with your activities. Clearly, in these circumstances there is more chance of something being overlooked. The costs of getting it wrong - No one plans to have an accident. No one wants to become ill as a result of their work. Yet there is no shortage of examples – some major, or fatal – all serious and costly.
We have all heard the saying: ‘If you think safety is expensive, try an accident!’ but it’s not just the financial cost that is devastating if there’s an accident, it’s the emotional impacts that have the biggest effect. The long term damage and devastating impact it can have on us as human beings, you, your team our families, clients and colleagues.
At NABEL - We will manage five practical steps for Contract Management & Safety for you -
‘When I’m pressed for time to get a job done, it’s easy to rush too quickly into getting someone in to do a job. In my opinion the time I take in planning a job properly with NABEL LIMITED is time and money well spent.’ - FM Operations manager (employing 38 staff)
NABEL will manage the safety at each step for you - No matter how small the job, or how fast you need it to be completed, we know that health and safety doesn’t start when the contractor arrives on site. We will work with you and for you at every step to ensure as a team we think about health and safety as soon as you know a job needs to be done whilst ensuring it is also cost efficient.
