Schools are busy and constantly changing environments. Children are by their nature inquisitive and they do not always evaluate the consequences of their actions. It is therefore critical that risks arising from contract work are managed to ensure children, as well as other members of the school community, are protected from harm. This will require action from both the contractor and the school to adequately plan contract work, to communicate effectively during the work and to remain ever vigilant in assessing and managing risks.
All contractors undertaking work at St Luke's Catholic Parish School must ensure that they complete a copy of the Contractor Workplace Health & Safety Pack. This document needs to be read and understood by you so that your company may undertake work at our school.
This pack complies with the procedure recommended by the Archdiocese of Brisbane, Catholic Education for managing the potential health and safety risks associated with contractors working in schools.
For long-term or regular contractors, such as cleaners or electricians, this pack must be re-issued every twelve months, and the Contractor Induction Register signed accordingly.
Should you have any queries in relation to the Pack please contact the Principal on 3398 6633 or email the school at firstname.lastname@example.org.
St Luke’s School grounds are designated as a Smoke Free Environment. Visitors are asked to refrain from smoking whilst on the grounds or within 5 metres of school boundaries.
When working on the school site, contractors shall report to the office and sign in prior to commencing work each day. A badge will be issued which must be worn at all times. Contractors shall return the badge and sign out before leaving the site each day. All areas are to be secured after leaving.
