This course will provide various perspectives on minimum requirements and better practices related to safe execution of work performed by contractors within the pulp and paper industry.  The first day will focus on the topic from the perspective of companies who employ contractors.  The second day will approach the topic from the perspective of the contracting companies.  The intent is to have various organizations who are involved in different aspects of this work share what they feel are the necessary elements and activities that must exist on both sides in order for a project to be executed safely.  Attendees can attend either day or both for the same fee.
