There are currently 127 councils in NSW who provide a wide range of services to the community
The most important of these services, are those related to local road maintainence, garbage collection, building regulations and public health and recreational facilities. In order to provide and maintain these services, Councils engage large numbers of specialist contractors. Under the WHS Act 2011 (NSW), they need to ensure the health and safety of these workers, their workplaces as well as ensuring they have the appropriate levels of insurance to protect themselves as well as the public.
Managing the Contractors and Suppliers who work at Council Sites
Councils must manage the compliance requirements of contractors and suppliers who provide them with a wide range of services. It is a challenge for councils to have a consistent process to manage them across their various departments and sites.
- How does council ensure that their contractors and suppliers meet minimum compliance criteria such as security checks, qualifications and insurances?
- Are currently engaged contractors and suppliers compliant with their minimum requirements?
- Does council have an effective corporate induction process?
- Does council have a site specific induction process?
