All new and existing contractors and their workers will need to: -
- Undertake a company WHS Induction Course prior to commencing work on site.
- And from time to time attend training or information sessions organised by the company.
Please Note: Only competent safety minded employees are permitted on site.
Non-adherence to company safety rules maybe a serious breach of your contract with our business and the relationship may be terminated if serious breaches are not rectified or continue.
- This course does NOT replace any relevant Act/s or Regulation/s.
- The information contained in this course should not be substituted for specific legal advice, but is provided as guidance to enable us both to manage our work health and safety (WHS) in a systematic manner.
- Your business may need to develop additional information, which takes into account your circumstances specific to site conditions, trade interface, client requirements and your individual company policies and procedures.
- It is condition of entry to our company sites that these safety requirements are adhered with.
- All Acts, Regulations and Codes of Practice having jurisdiction over your work MUST be followed and adhered to at all times.
The WHS Act defines your employees and subcontractors as workers, as such it makes it impossible to dilute your work health & safety responsibilities by using subcontractors as they become your workers with this in mind we would like to remind you of our subcontracting policy, which states our company requires all workers to be inducted in to our WHS management plan for our construction sites.
Purchasing/ Procurement: (Materials Goods & Services)
It is the obligation of the Principal Contractor that all materials, equipment and plant purchased or hired must conform to the relevant WHS legislation and Australian Standards.
All relevant WHS compliance documentation should then be collected and approved before signing contracts for the supply of materials goods and services to the construction site.
Have you read our company WHS policy, understood our objectives and understood your responsibilities?
