OUTSOURCE OR IN-HOUSE OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH REQUIREMENTS?

In-house or outsource occupational safety and health

OUTSOURCE OR IN-HOUSE?

Occupational Health and Safety

The dilemma for any organisation other than very large ones is whether to have their absolute legal obligations for Occupational Health and Safety undertaken by in-house people or outsourced. Without doubt, the best type is in-house but there is no legal obligation to follow this route. If you have to make a decision of IN-HOUSE v OUTSOURCED here are some thoughts about the advantages of each, which might help you to decide.

 

IN-HOUSE SERVICE

- Close relationship with work-force and management.

- Full understanding of work activities.

- Convenient and close to hand for when needed.

- Skills developed as best needed by the organisation.

- Their interests are with the organisation - first and foremost.

 

OUTSOURCED SERVICE

- No salaries, pensions, insurances or other employment related overheads to administrate.

- Available on ‘phone or internet for immediate advice.

- Payment for services only as may be required - no overheads.

- Extra services such as training available and flexible.

- Likely to have a wider range of knowledge and experiences.

- Can build relationship with client and provide impartial advice.
