Management of Contractors
Get maximum value from contractors at work
This course is available as part of the Performance Management eLearning Suite in one great package.
Although contractors aren't employees of your organisation, employers still have many responsibilities when it comes to managing them. There is a lot of legislation relevant to managing contactors, e.g. Health and Safety at Work (1974) and COSHH regulations, and it's important that managers within your company know and understand contractors' rights.
This module provides an overview of relevant legislation concerning the management of contractors and explains the different responsibilities that managers, employees, and contractors all have when they come into work. Throughout the training course, learners will answer questions to assess their understanding and retention of the information.
Please note that this course is not yet compatible with mobile devices.
