How far does our obligation to ensure our principal contractors are complying with safety recommendations from third party audits extend?
Q: We engage principal contractors on our construction projects. We also engage a third party to conduct audits on each principal contractor once per year on each of their projects. We then coordinate the completion of any actions in response to the audit with the principal contractor. Do we need to get evidence of each closed action or is an email stating that action items are closed enough? We are based in WA.
