Contractors

OHS guidelines emphasize the importance of contractors adhering to safety protocols, including risk assessments, training requirements, and compliance with safety standards specific to the workplace. Clear communication between employers and contractors regarding safety expectations, responsibilities, and procedures is vital to maintain a safe work environment. Contractors should demonstrate competency in OHS practices, provide necessary documentation, and actively participate in maintaining a safe workplace, collaborating with employers to mitigate risks and ensure the well-being of all workers involved in the project.
