The revised HSW Handbook Chapter “Contractor Safety Management” has now been posted on the HSW Website.
This version of the process seeks to achieve the following outcomes:
- To provide clearer administrative and operational responsibilities for Contractor Safety Management activities. (e.g. Head of School/Branch responsibilities, have been transferred to the person engaging/managing a contractor or the contract at the operational level).
- To ensure that all contractors required to work in an area where hazardous chemicals are in use or stored are provided with a local laboratory induction by the University’s staff member responsible for the laboratory/area.
- To clarify safety management responsibilities for the contractors engaged for construction work (including induction and hazard management) by including a quick reference guide (Appendix C).
