Overview | Contractor Safety Training

Contractor Safety Training is a pivotal program designed to enhance the work health and safety (WHS) management within organisations that engage contractors. This comprehensive training equips participants with the essential skills and knowledge necessary to navigate the complexities of managing contractor-related WHS implications effectively.

Participants will delve into identifying contractor duties, establishing organisational WHS compliance requirements, and clearly communicating the expectations set forth for contractors. This proactive approach not only ensures compliance with WHS standards but also fosters a safer working environment for both contractors and permanent staff.

The Contractor Safety training curriculum is structured to cover the critical aspects of contractor management, including the legal and regulatory framework governing contractor use, methods for assessing and monitoring contractor WHS performance, and strategies for effective communication between all parties. Participants will learn how to establish robust WHS requirements tailored to the specific duties of contractors, ensuring these external workers understand and adhere to the same high standards of safety as their in-house counterparts. Through practical exercises and real-world case studies, trainees will gain the confidence to implement and oversee contractor safety protocols, ensuring compliance and minimising risks.

Upon completion of the Contractor Safety Training, participants will be proficient in monitoring contractor compliance with WHS requirements and adept at implementing necessary responses to identified non-compliance. This training is indispensable for WHS officers, project managers, and anyone involved in the procurement and management of contractors. By ensuring that contractors are not only aware of but also actively comply with WHS policies, organisations can significantly reduce the risk of accidents and injuries, thereby creating a safer, more compliant, and productive working environment for everyone involved.
