What may I expect from my principal?
You may expect your principal to act as a good principal, for example by making the risks associated with the work and the work environment clear in the invitation to provide temporary employees (or by giving you a guided tour to experience them for yourself), including temporary employees in the principal's SHE organization and maintaining contacts with you and the temporary employees to discuss any potential improvements, where relevant.
Does your principal require you to have SCT certification?
When your principal requires you to have SCT certification then you may expect that your principal regards SCT as more than a provision in a contract that can be left to the procurement officers; the principal's safety officers will consult with you on a customized approach to each project.
Does your principal have SCP certification?
When your principal has SCP certification then you may assume that the principal makes an inventory of the risks associated with the work to be contracted out and the environment in which the work is to be carried out, informs you about them and makes every effort to control those risks. The principal is prepared for emergencies and ensures that your temporary employees will be told what to do in an emergency. You may also expect that you will be able to assess the principal's efforts to provide safe and healthy work conditions and that points for improvement are addressed.
