Contractor Safety

The engaging of contractors plays an integral part of the Divisions function within the University to maintain and enhance our buildings, grounds and other assets. This page provides an outline of the requirements for contractors working on our campuses, to ensure our work health & safety obligations are met and we maintain a safe campus environment for our students, staff and visitors.

We engage contractors for a diverse range of works and consultancies, but all are expected to have and maintain work health and safety documentation as appropriate for the works to be performed, including licenses, permits or other approvals. A safe work plan must be agreed with your site supervisor prior to the commencement of works on a University premise. Contractors working at the University are to comply with the requirements of the Work Health & Safety Act, Regulations and relevant Codes of Practice. Additionally, Contractors are expected to comply with relevant University policies unless otherwise agreed in writing.
