Dear

I have a question related to ISO 45001 Clause 8.3

if we are a manufacturing unit, we outsource the transportation and shipping of our products to an external company

in this case are we responsible for the driver and car how they drive? and if they cause an accident to another people while transport our product.

we sign a contract with them, that they should use a qualified driver and follow all traffic rules

Dear

I have a question related to ISO 45001 Clause 8.3
There is no such clause in ISO 45001:2018. Outsourcing is 8.1.4.3. The standard is clear that the organization shall ensure that outsourced functions and processes are controlled and the driver of the transportation company falls under the definition of worker. As a timely example, if you have guidance/regulations to protect your own employees in this time of COVID-19 pandemic, why wouldn't you flow down the same to the transportation company employees? Are there any SDS Training required? PPE deployment? OSHA reporting? They need to be aware and comply. If you don't flow down your applicable OHS requirements to the transportation contractors, you are not CONTROLLING the transportation function.

Greetings of the day, Sunrizenew,
Clause 8.1.4.3 is clear that outsourced functions, services, activities and processes are controlled to the type and degree. As you have already recited, you can have a contract or an agreement with the service provider of clearly specifying what are with your and his scope, taking into the interest of the organisation.
Suppose, you have a logistics arrangement for the company workers, then its better and legally you bear the entire responsibility of the contractor including the driver. But if its a logistics for receipt or delivery of the material, then you can judge and apply the controls.
Regards.

Hello.

I believe above all that this paragraph "outsourcing" means that the company that outsources a function cannot ignore the way in which the subcontractor manages the OH&S of its personnel.

This management must be consistent with the OHSMS of the company which outsources and in line with the OH&S regulatory requirements. However, that does not mean that the outsourcing company is responsible (in particular legally) for the OH&S of the external entity members.

Cordially.

One should ensure that the T's and C's in a PO or contract include a statement that suppliers/contractors have to comply with all applicable National, State and local regulations for the environment and Health and Safety. Standard in most PO's/contracts in the U.S.
