Establish Contractor Classification & Requirements

To enable further understanding of what type of contractor you are classified as by Urban Utilities, please review Urban Utilities' Procurement & Sourcing Procedure (in draft) and Contractor WHS Management Standard Operating Procedure.

Prepare WHS Documentation
A risk assessment must be developed in consultation with all interested parties and understood by all Contractors and Urban Utilities workers. Information provided to Urban Utilities must address specific legislation, industry codes, and standards relevant to all hazards / risks and work conditions. All prepared information should then be provided to the relevant Urban Utilities Contract/Project Manager/Urban Utilities Person in Control of Worksite prior to commencement of work (or upon agreed arrangement with the Project/ Contract Manager/PICOW). The Principal Contractor for a construction project must prepare a documented Work Health and Safety Management Plan before work on a construction project commences.

All contractors, other than a ‘Principle Contractor’ as defined by Urban Utilities, should prepare relevant WHS documentation and complete the WHS Documentation Checklist (CHE452) and submit to the relevant Urban Utilities Supervisor or PICOW, at least 48hrs prior to arriving on an Urban Utilities site. If this information is not submitted, access to site may be denied until further information has been provided.
