It is a condition that all Contractors and their sub-contactors have completed the Flinders University induction and comply with the University Work Health and Safety policies whilst carrying out their work on University premises or controlled areas.

The policy sets a framework to ensure that all contractors, sub-contractors and workers are provided with a safe working environment and that they work in ways that will maintain that safe environment.
