Develop compliance strategies and tools for monitoring contractor activities and ensuring WHS risks associated with contractors are identified and addressed.

Contractor management can be a very challenging area for organisations to manage and your obligations under Workplace Health and Safety legislation are not absolved because you have engaged the services of a contractor. It is important that contractors have a clear understanding of what is required while on site at your workplace and that they have their own robust safety policy and safety procedures in place. We can work with you to develop a contractor safety management program that demonstrates due diligence and gives you a practical tool to systematically manage your contractors and ensure it is integrated properly into your WHS management system.

Contractor Management

As per the WHS Act, a contractor by definition is a worker. Contractors are anyone or any organisation supplying services, goods, materials and substances or installing plant and equipment. Contractor Management is by far the worst managed risk we see in most organisations. This is a combination of not understanding legislative obligations by both the organisation engaging the contractor and the contractors themselves.

If your organisation engages contractors or sub-contractors, contractor risk management should be integrated into your WHS management system.The complexity of the contractor management process will depend on how a contractor is engaged, the type of work, where and under what circumstances the work is being conducted.

Our consultants with experience in managing contractors will work with you to develop a contractor management program that demonstrates due diligence and gives you a practical tool to systematically manage contractors.

If you already have a contractor management process in place, we can do a gap analysis to ensure your current WHS policy and safety procedures are up to date with current Work Health and Safety legislation.
