Subcontractor management policy

Labouroo Group Pty Ltd has developed this policy to provide a healthy and safe workplace for workers, subcontractors, and visitors. It is important that subcontractors and their workers work practices do not pose a risk to health, safety and the environment, and our workplace and workforce does not pose a risk to the subcontractor or their workers. This policy outlines the rules, responsibilities, and procedures for subcontractor management.

This policy applies across the organisation of Labouroo Group Pty Ltd and all workplaces under our control.

All subcontractors engaged by Labouroo Group Pty Ltd are to adhere to the following requirements:

  • Complete the Subcontractor Safety Checklist and provide any supporting documents required;
  • Provide a Risk Assessment for the site and Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS) for the tasks for which they are contracted;
  • Make sure their workers actions do not endanger the health and safety of other workers and visitors in or near the workplace;
  • Report incidents, near misses and hazards to the PCBU/Supervisor;

PCBU/Supervisors must:

  • Implement and review this policy;
  • Consult with workers and subcontractors about this policy;
  • Make sure subcontractors are provided with the Subcontractor Safety Checklist and it is completed, and supporting documentation is provided by the subcontractor prior to them commencing work;
  • Make sure all subcontractors understand Labouroo Group Pty Ltd policies, safety rules and their roles and responsibilities;
  • Make sure any subcontractor is not put at risk by the activities of other workers; and
  • Provide a safe and healthy workplace for all subcontractors;

Workers must:

  • Work in a manner that does not endanger the health and safety of subcontractors in the workplace.

Censure or Termination of Contract:

Subcontractors who do not comply with this policy will be subject to the following procedures:

  • When a PCBU/Supervisor becomes aware of an alleged breach of Labouroo Group Pty Ltd policies and/or site rules, they will initially speak with the subcontractor as soon as possible after the alleged breach has been reported;
  • The subcontractor will have the opportunity within a reasonable time to explain and rectify their actions;
  • The proceedings will be conducted honestly, fairly and without bias; and
  • If the subcontractor does not give reasonable cause for their actions or does not rectify the reason for the grievance/complaint, the Contract will be terminated, and the subcontractor removed from the workplace.
