2 PURPOSE The purpose of this standard is to provide the overarching framework for BAC s contractor management process. SCOPE This Standard applies to the engagement and management of contractors performing work or services for, or associated with, BAC activities and operations. DEFINITIONS Accredited external OHS Auditor means a person with accreditation by a recognised accrediting authority as an OHS auditor, i.e. Accredited Lead WHS Auditor with RABQSA. Competent Person means a person who has, through a combination of training, education and experience, acquired appropriate knowledge and skills enabling that person to perform correctly the specified task. Contractor means a person or company engaged to perform work or services with, or associated with BAC. Examples of a contractor include a person or company engaged to: build or improve buildings or facilities; perform maintenance work to existing buildings or facilities; provide expert advice in a specific area of expertise consulting services; or in a labour hire capacity. Category A Contractor means a contractor who has been or is to be appointed as a Principal Contractor for a specific construction project. Category B Contractor means a contractor performing works within areas of the airport which are controlled by BAC and where the activities associated with the works are undertaken in accordance with the contractor s own OHS management system, safety plan and procedures. NOTE: Category B contractors are still required to adhere to all approval and training requirements of BAC s OHS management system and are subject to supervision activities of BAC staff. Category B contractors are generally used to perform or provide long-term continuous work or services integrated within airport operations, such as cleaning or security contracts. Category C Contractor means contractors who do not operate an OHS management system to a standard accepted by BAC and are therefore subject to all elements of BAC s OHS management system, including undertaking risk Date Issued July 2010 Management Procurement/ Uncontrolled if Printed Page 2 of 11

3 assessments and developing work method statements for the work or services they are to perform in accordance with BAC s OHS Management System. Category D Contractor means a person or company engaged in a consulting capacity where no construction or maintenance activities are undertaken. These contractors are required to work in accordance with BAC OHS management system. Category E Contractor (Tenant) means a company or individual who has an existing contract or lease agreement with BAC giving them effective and sustained control over land, a building or part of a building. BAC tenants do not provide works or services but may require approval from BAC prior to certain activities being undertaken. Project Manager means a BAC employee responsible for managing construction project activities. Work Coordinator means a BAC employee responsible for managing contractors in the performance of maintenance activities. Principal Contractor means the contractor appointed by BAC in the approved form for the purpose of performing construction work in accordance with the Workplace Heath and Safety Act BACKGROUND BAC operates a lean organisational structure that relies heavily on the outsourcing of a number of activities, including maintenance and construction works. The work activities of contractors have the potential to result in injury to not only contractors but also BAC employees, other airport workers and/or members of the public. To mitigate this risk, it is essential that there are appropriate processes implemented to control, review and supervise OHS aspects of contractor works. In addition to this, BAC has a legislative obligation to ensure that risks associated with its operations and activities, including those performed by contractors, contractor employees and subcontractors are managed. This Standard establishes the framework for BAC s contractor management systems in order to ensure appropriate minimum standards of OHS for BAC contractors, including the effective management, monitoring and control of these standards in the performance of contractor works or services. Date Issued July 2010 Management Procurement/ Uncontrolled if Printed Page 3 of 11

8 Standard. OHS Performance Access Access to any Principal Contractor work location is the sole responsibility of, and controlled by, the Principal Contractor appointed for those works. Site access for BAC employees should be addressed as part of the OHS management documentation provided for the works or services by the Principal Contractor. For all works that are conducted in BAC-controlled areas access remains the responsibility of BAC. OHS Management Principal Contractors Principal Contractors are responsible for ensuring that OHS processes accepted by BAC as part of the project approval are implemented. Where work is required to be undertaken outside of a Principal Contractor s defined work boundaries that meets the criteria stipulated in BAC s Permit to Work Corporate Standard, a Work Clearance is required to be issued. Other Contractors Category B contractors are to ensure that their audited OHS management system and relevant procedures accepted through the approval process are implemented and followed by the Contractor s employees whilst on-site. Where work meets the criteria stipulated in BAC s Corporate Standard for Permit to Work, a Work Authorisation is required to be issued. System control documentation provided by the contractor as part of the permit application may be in the format required by their audited OHS management system. Category C contractors are required to adhere to all the applicable processes provided by BAC s OHSMS. OHS Auditing, Inspection and Observation OHS Audits, inspections or observations may be undertaken during the life of a contract with BAC in accordance with any included OHS contract provisions. BAC will conduct OHS audits, inspections and/or observation activities deemed appropriate for the contractor activities in BAC-controlled areas, including the activities of Principal Contractors where these have the potential to impact on BAC areas of control. These review activities will be conducted in accordance with the BAC Monitoring, Measurement and Review Procedure. Any identified non-conformances or system deficiencies will be reported to the nominated responsible person for the contract/contractor in accordance with BAC s Hazard and Non-Conformance Reporting Procedure. Date Issued July 2010 Management Procurement/ Uncontrolled if Printed Page 8 of 11

9 In conjunction with this, BAC employees should undertake regular inspections and observations of any contractor work activities for which they are responsible, documenting and ensuring rectification of any identified issues in accordance with the above procedure. Where a serious risk is identified during the above activities, the BAC employee conducting the inspection must take any necessary steps to ensure immediate cessation of the activity and commence appropriate measures to ensure the situation is remedied and/or made safe as soon as possible. During the life of a contract or works approval, a contractor may be called to show cause or discuss the adverse findings or report relating to their OHS performance. This should occur whenever the results of an OHS audit, inspection, or demonstrated poor performance concerns such as a serious incident or government sanction become evident. The responsible BAC person overseeing the contract and/or BAC manager must consult with the contractor to remedy the situation and ensure the contractor can continue to work under the contract or works approval to an appropriate standard in accordance with BAC OHS minimum requirements. OHS Reporting Requirements All contractors are required to report to their BAC contact the following: Notifiable Incidents (any incident involving death, dismemberment, injury where more than 4 days off work is required, any illness caused by work or a dangerous event- refer Definitions).
