Not only safety Officer,you cannot outsource any work which is perennial in nature. Moreover, a Safety Officer is an employing coming under confidential staff. He is appointed following specific provisions in the Factories Act and notification by the government. Therefore, you cannot engage a Safety officer though a third party.
