Monitoring the work
The duty holder (client) is responsible for ensuring that the contractor complies with the safe working practices. The arrangements made by the contractor should include:
- Having a sign in-and-out procedure for workers
- Carrying out site induction training for their workers
- Providing a named works supervisor on site
- Controlling high-risk activities with a relevant permit-to-work system.
The duty holder (client) should also review the risk assessments and agreed method statements prior to commencement of the work. If the agreed safe working practices are not being followed or are being altered by staff or working conditions, the client can have the work activity stopped so that the issue can be addressed appropriately.
