Managing contractors has changed since the harmonisation of the Work Health and Safety Act in 2011. The change from employee to worker has altered the responsibility of principle contractors to contractors and sub-contractors.
Subcontractors are now deemed workers and principal contractors have the same responsibilities to them as full-time employees. This means for the business owner they need to make sure that sub-contractors have safe work practices and training to complete the tasks they are contracted to do safely. CIRT provides the following functions to assist businesses.
Easily register all necessary contractor data including personal information, significant certificates, training information and licences
Upload to and access an organised, controlled, and secured document database
Document and date any conversation with employees securely and privately, and attach any required documentation
Supply workers and contractors with an easy to navigate and completely tailorable induction from home, office, or work site
