As specialists in the Engineering sector, we are more than aware of the specific needs and challenges that it provides with regards to Health and Safety. As such, we take the care of all clients, candidates and employees under our responsibility very seriously indeed. Nevertheless, we must stress where the limits of that responsibility lie.
Firstly, it is vital that we receive full details of the position that a candidate will fill – including the range of activities and expectations within the role – as well as specific risks to health or safety that the Client is aware of and what steps they have taken to prevent or control such risks
For the avoidance of doubt, when the candidate is carrying out the role, health and safety considerations are the sole responsibility of the client, not Engineering Jobs Cumbria. All placed candidates in any form are always under the direction, supervision and control of the client.
With regards to a Temporary Employee, the same obligation exists – all candidates are deemed to be under the exclusive direction and control of the Client from the time the worker reports to take up duties and for the duration of the assignment.
For full details of these health and safety regulations, we would direct you to our Terms and Conditions.
