Through the use of various activities and checklists, you will learn about the key elements that must be in place before you hire a contractor.

For your convenience most course dates have been scheduled to coordinate with Managing Safety of On-site Contractors (see below). It is recommended that where possible, you first attend Hiring Outside Contractors, followed by Managing Safety of On-Site Contractors.

Where the two courses are being held on the same day, Hiring Outside Contractors will be held in the morning, followed in the afternoon by Managing Safety of On-Site Contractors.
