·         The University Code of Practice for Contractors (or a suitable alternate Code approved by the University Safety Committee) shall be provided to all contractors, by the person engaging them, prior to the commencement of work at the University. The person engaging the contractor will also be held responsible for ensuring that the contractor complies with the University Health and Safety requirements at all times that they are working for the University regardless of where the work is being undertaken.

·         It is specifically noted that the term contractor includes both conventional contracting companies (such as a construction contractor) and any other form of contractor including individual persons undertaking work for the University as part of a contract (including research contracts).

·         The responsibility to manage the contractor and ensure their compliance with the University health and safety policy and procedures remains that of the contracting Unit of the University.
