It’s typical for companies to use contractors for certain aspects of their operations. But your company could be held liable for safety violations committed by your contractors. So it’s important that you have a policy in place for all aspects of your company’s work with contractors.
HOW TO USE THIS TOOL
This model contractor safety policy covers all aspects of procedures for handling contractors, including pre-qualification, selection, monitoring, evaluation and administration of the health and safety capability and performance of all levels of contractors, subcontractors and suppliers. Adapt this policy for your OHS program, operations and the OHS laws in your jurisdiction. A copy of this policy should be given to all contractors and subcontractors as well as anyone in your company who works with contractors and their employees.
