Laurier is committed to providing a safe and healthy workplace for all of its employees, students and visitors. To fulfil this commitment, the university must ensure that all contractors and sub-contractors are meeting or exceeding the requirements and standards of health, safety and environmental legislation. Laurier's Contract Labour Policy and Contract Labour Program must be followed by all contractors prior to initiating work at Laurier.
All construction activities must be carried out safely and in compliance with the provincial Occupational Health and Safety Act and its regulations. Laurier has developed a Contract Labour Policy for all employees that are hiring contractors to follow.
Advance planning and quality site preparations are important for a safer, environmentally conscious, well-organized construction site. The Contract Labour Program applies to all contractors, general contractors and subcontractors that provide services to Laurier. Laurier’s Contract Labour Program outlines the specific requirements and documentation needed for contractors prior to beginning work at Laurier.
In order to be approved for work at Laurier, all applicable documents outlined in the Contract Labour Program must be received by the Laurier project administrator and considered acceptable with respect to the specific project. The project administrator will review the documents taking into account the scope of the intended work.
The project administrator will consult with Laurier's Safety, Health, Environment and Risk Management (SHERM) office as required. All documentation must be valid for the duration of the project or must be resubmitted. Should the scope of the project change, a review of the submitted contract labour documentation should be conducted by the Laurier project administrator to ensure it is acceptable.
If you have any questions specific to your project, please direct them to your Laurier project administrator.
A Contractor Safety Guidelines booklet is provided to contractors to inform them of Laurier's safety requirements.
