Contractor health and safety induction template

A template for departments to induct contractors working on their behalf.

This presentation provides the key health and safety information that departments are required to provide to the contractors they employ. As a department, you can develop your own unique contractor induction training if required. You are also free to add in additional information to the provided template if you wish to provide further guidance for contractors. This could include providing lists of key contacts or information about local rules or procedures not otherwise included in the template.

If you would like advice or guidance on developing your own department-specific training or modifying the provided template, please contact the University's Safety, Health and Employee Wellbeing Service.

Once contractors have been inducted, you should ask them to sign a declaration confirming they have received an induction and have understood the information they have been provided. A copy of this declaration should be maintained by the department. A contractor induction record template can be downloaded from this page.
