The legal framework in health and safety (HS) normally obligates all stakeholders involved in the construction industry, regardless of company size or type of activity. It requires technical document management and specialized organizational support, and must cover promoters, owners, technicians, EPCs, contractors, subcontractors and self-employed workers.
Introducing appropriate HS management systems will:
- Reduce incident and accident rates
- Protect assets
- Save money
- Ensure regulatory compliance
- Minimize potential legal consequences
