The engaging of external contractors plays an integral part of the Divisions function within the University. The following information provides an outline of the processes of our contractor induction system to ensure our Work Health & Safety obligations are maintained.
The basis of this system is the general induction of all contractors. This allows any contractor the ability to undergo the general induction and have their records available for work on any campus of the University. The general induction package provides an overview of their Work Health & Safety duties, both in terms of statutory and University requirements.
Below are the individual components of the system. Many of these allow for some degree of flexibility to suit the particular campus operations without any loss of commonality of the system for the Division.
Contractor General Site Induction Package
The package outlines the University's requirements to comply with the Work Health & Safety Act 2011, the Work Health & Safety Regulation 2011 and Codes of Practice. It also comprises of the University's Safety policies, procedures and other relevant information for contractors working at the University.
All contractors are required undertake the Contractor General Site Induction prior to performing work at the University and return a declaration stating that their work practices will comply with the relevant statutory and University policies. This declaration is included in the Contractor General Site Induction package, but will also be included separately, for ease of access.
All contractors are required to have and maintain their relevant insurances during the period of work at the University. Copies of Certificates of Currency are required to be provided to an authorised officer of the University prior to the commencement of works and at regular intervals on request.
CSU Contractor ID Badges and Contractor site log book
All contractors are required to report to the Divisions office at each campus on arrival and complete the contractor site log book and collect a CSU contractor ID badge.
