The Contractor Safety Management framework describes the processes and practices to be undertaken by the University of Tasmania to fulfil its obligations under WHS legislation in relation to contractors by:

  • taking a systematic approach to WHS management throughout University of Tasmania
  • promoting WHS as a priority in managing contracts
  • improving contractor’s WHS performance
  • promoting consistent practices for the WHS management of contractors
  • promoting economic efficiency through standardisation of contractor WHS management

This framework establishes a systematic, risk-based approach to managing the WHS component throughout all the phases of a contractor’s engagement.The intent is to maintain minimal intervention for low risk basic contracts, but a more robust oversight process for high risk and more complex contracts.
