We are committed to work health and safety (WHS) and recognises its duty to ensure the health and safety of all persons potentially impacted by its activities. This duty extends to the activities of all contractors and subcontractors engaged by us.
We have developed and implemented a comprehensive safety management system, consistent with Australian Standards, which provides a high standard of workplace health and safety and aims for zero harm. Also we require all of our contractors and subcontractors to have in place safe systems of work at least equivalent to the safety standards in place at AlburyCity.
It is a requirement that all relevant contractors who provide services to us be WHS registered. Relevant contractors are those who undertake work at our facilities or in a public place on our behalf. This is a process whereby all relevant contractors complete the Contractor Safety Compliance Package to demonstrate their ability to manage WHS and that they have the appropriate insurance and licences in place.
Contractors not already registered for WHS purposes are required to complete and submit the Contractor Safety Compliance Package prior to undertaking any work for us. This includes those contractors who wish to submit a quote or tender. In this regard, the successful contractor must be registered for WHS purposes under our contractor management system including the provision of documentary evidence against each of the criteria shown, prior to being awarded the contract.
Failure to have an adequate safety system in place can make a quote or tender submission non-compliant, regardless of the quality of the rest of the submission.
