Contractor Management

If your company engages contractors to perform work primarily on behalf of the company, you are responsible for ensuring a safe working environment and safe systems for those contractors. Contractors engaged to perform such work are regarded as workers under the WHS regulations, and responsibility for the safety of those workers is the same as for any other worker. To ensure contractor safety requires:

  • Preparation of safety management plans for the site or project
  • Induction into company safety management plans
  • Preparation of safety documentation relevant to the work, e.g., High Risk SWMS
  • Checking that licenses and permits relevant to the work are current and available
  • Auditing of contractor personnel training
  • Regular consultation with workers re company and site safety
  • Auditing of site work to ensure processes are being followed as per pre-qualification requirements
  • Incident investigation and recording

IPAC can assist with the preparation of safety management plans for sites and projects. IPAC can perform all contractor pre-qualification assessments on behalf of the principal contractor and assist with preparation of compliant documentation for the site or project. We offer on-line induction programs and site-based assessment of compliance, with detailed, summarised reporting to management and corrective actions for identified issues. We work with both the principal contractor and contractor to ensure compliance and cooperation.

Our experience in managing construction contractor compliance leaves IPAC ideally positioned to manage your contractor safety compliance to free up time and resources and allow you to focus on the completion of the project work.
