Schools are busy and constantly changing environments. Children are by their nature inquisitive and they do not always evaluate the consequences of their actions. It is therefore critical that risks arising from contract work are managed to ensure children, as well as other members of the school community, are protected from harm. This will require action from both the contractor and the school to adequately plan contract work, to communicate effectively during the work and to remain ever vigilant in assessing and managing risks.
All contractors undertaking work at St Peter's Catholic Primary School must ensure that they receive a copy of the relevant Contractor Workplace Health & Safety Pack. (Please contact the school office to obtain the appropriate pack.) The document needs to be read and understood by you so that your company may undertake work at our school.
This pack complies with the procedure recommended by the Archdiocese of Brisbane, Catholic Education for managing the potential health and safety risks associated with contractors working in schools.
For long-term or regular contractors, such as cleaners or electricians, this pack must be re-issued every twelve months, and the Contractor Induction Register signed accordingly.
Should you have any queries in relation to the Pack please contact the Principal on 5495 2266 or email the school at firstname.lastname@example.org.
