Contractor Induction Checklist

Version 1.1 Updated 3 Jun 2022
Forms & Checklists Recruitment

Who can use this checklist?  

This checklist can be used by all businesses who engage contractors. This checklist should be used in conjunction with the Contractor Management Procedure, the Contractor Pre-Qualification Checklist and the Approved Contractors Register.
 
Commentary
 
Under the relevant health and safety legislation (‘Legislation’) and associated regulations and codes of practice, the primary duty imposed on a person conducting a business or undertaking is to eliminate or minimise, as far as reasonably practicable, the risks to health and safety in the workplace.
 
It is a common misconception that a business wipes its hands clean of safety obligations under the Legislation by engaging contractors and relying on the contractors to fulfil their safety obligations.
 
Businesses should use this checklist prior to allowing contractors on their worksites because they have a duty to provide information on the site safety requirements and explain all work processes that could pose a risk to the health and safety of a contractor and, if relevant, the contractor’s employees. This checklist will assist businesses to meet their work, health and safety obligations regarding any contractors that they engage and help ensure that any potential risks are eliminated, or minimised, as far as practicable, so that work is able to be performed in a safe manner.
