Contractor management

We recognise the importance of managing contractor health, safety and productivity whilst they are working with us.

Our Contractor Compliance Guide helps us ensure that mobilisation to site is quicker and easier, and to assist contractors with safety compliance on site.  The main requirements must be completed or undertaken by the contractor. Please be aware that these are typical requirements and may vary from time to time. Site specifics and further information can be obtained from your council contract owner. Please check with them prior to arrival on site.

As part of the contractor process, all required documentation must be supplied prior to arrival on site and must be reviewed by us before approval is given to start work. A contractor may use their own version of the required documents but they must meet legislative and our own requirements.  The Authority to Work indicates which Safe Work Method Statements must be provided.

As part of our Enforceable Undertaking, we have committed to a complete overhaul of our contractor management system, and the first step in this is to implement a contractor safety permit.  This permit is required to be completed for all minor works and is to be completed in conjunction with the contract owner.

More information and support for our contractors will be provided in the coming weeks.

Information Sessions will be held in your local area and will be advertised both here and on the community events calendar.

If you have any concerns or questions in the interim, please email
