Please note the difference between Bona Fide and Labour Only subcontractors as follows:
Bona Fide subcontractors are any company, firm or individual who undertake work where they supply their own labour, materials and use their own tools. Bona fide subcontractors are responsible for their own risk assessments, method statements and for supervising the health and safety aspects of the contract.
Labour Only subcontractors work under the direction and control of the employing company, who take on the responsibility for risk assessments, method statements and, usually, the provision of materials and equipment. Employers have a statutory duty under Health & Safety law to protect labour only subcontractors the same as they would PAYE employees.
