Why did we develop this program?
People in workplaces in Australia require a 'safe' working environment. Organisations utilising contractors face challenges unique to the contractual arrangement in ensuring safety is in place and enforceable. Work Safety Hub can assist you in meeting your legal duty of care to ensure adequate OHS information, instruction and training for your independent contractors.
This program describes the process for effective OHS management for those engaging contractors for specific projects. It covers the process, skills, knowledge and framework required to effectively manage contractor safety from commencement and tendering stage right through to project completion and review.
