Service providers and contractors - working on department-owned facilities

In November 2011 the department released Working on Department of Education and Training (DET) facilities Adobe PDF document288K.

The department has always had a stringent reputation for being transparent in managing any work undertaken on departmental facilities, particularly in relation to asbestos management.

This document will be used alongside all contracts, terms of reference and purchase order documents to ensure contractors fulfill their obligations regarding all work performed on department-owned facilities, including work involving asbestos-containing material (ACM).

The aim of the document is to clearly identify the responsibilities and obligations of contractors who undertake any work on department-owned facilities. This ensures full accountability on the part of the contractor for work completed and any issues which may arise.

Understanding your responsibilities

The department has developed a presentation that outlines the key responsibilities of service providers and contractors in the management of ACM in department-owned facilities.

This presentation is designed to provide information to inform service providers and contractors on requirements to prevent incidents from occurring. It outlines how to respond to situations to manage ACM effectively, safely and within the department's policy and procedures.

Understanding the responsibilities of service providers and contractors is essential before undertaking any works. Contractors found to have contravened asbestos regulations when undertaking work at department-owned facilities are dealt with severely. This includes a range of sanctions up to and including the inability to perform future work on or in departmental facilities.

This is an animated package that automatically streams from the provided link (approximately 30 minutes).
