Contract Liaison Manager

It is very important to us that our staff, clients, members of the public and visitors are all kept as safe as possible when we are running a site. As well as our staff having extensive health and safety training we employ a part time Contract Liaison Manager (CLM). They are responsible for ensuring health and safety is a priority on site. 

The CLM visits each site weekly, conducting vehicle checks, staff welfare checks, first aid box and defibrillator checks and thorough health and safety site checks. On occasions, the CLM will attend early client meetings to gain a better understanding of the site. The CLM attends our monthly management meetings.
