Invest, in cooperation with your contractors, in safe and healthy work conditions

Do you contract out high-risk work or work in high-risk environments? If so, it is even more important that the companies that carry out this work for you offer work in safe and healthy conditions and that you ensure that they can. When you have SCP certification then you demonstrate that your company attaches importance to safe and healthy work conditions. You also present yourself as an expert and reliable principal.

What may my contractor expect from me?

Your contractor may expect that you act as a good principal: You may then, for example, be expected to:

  • Ensure that your contractor can carry out the contract in safety (by making sufficient time, funds and resources to enable you to do so);
  • Ensure that your contractor does not need to sort out things that you have not arranged properly (your contractor is not expected to take over your work);
  • Be approachable, actively discuss the work with your contractor and appreciate your contractor's efforts to provide safe and healthy work conditions.

Do you require SCC certification?

When you require SCC certification then you may expect that your contractor appreciates that you regard SCC as more than a provision in a contract that can be left to the procurement officers and that your safety officers will consult with the contractor on a customized approach to each project.

Do you have SCP certification?

When you have SCP certification then your contractor may expect that you make an inventory of the risks associated with the work to be contracted out and the environment in which the work is to be carried out, inform the contractor about them and make every effort to control those risks. You are prepared for emergencies and ensure that the contractor's employees will be told what to do in an emergency. The contractor may also expect that the contractor will be able to assess your efforts to provide for safe and healthy work conditions and that points for improvement are addressed.

What may I expect from my contractor?

You may expect your contractor to act as a good contractor.

  • Your contractor knows, names and discusses the risks associated with the work and the work environment and takes measures to control the risks;
  • Your contractor makes every effort to avoid incidents and takes immediate actions should an incident nevertheless occur;
  • Your contractor offers his employees a safe and healthy work environment, in part by providing them safe work equipment and personal protective equipment;
  • Your contractor is approachable and open to tips and tricks that improve healthy and safe work conditions.

Has your contractor been awarded SCC certification?

When your contractor has SCC certification then you may expect that your contractor regards SCC as more than just a checklist to be ticked off; your contractor implements SCC in a carefully-considered and visible manner and consults with you on the controlled and efficient implementation of any improvements that may be necessary.
