S37(2) Contractor Agreement

Unread post by ehardy » 06 Jun 2018, 14:12

We operate in the public sector and appoint a number of small contractors and start ups. The work they have to perform is physical and labour intensive. In terms of section 37(2) in the OHS Act a contractor agreement is normally signed between the contractor and the land owner/ management authority and included in it is an element requiring the contractor to have liability insurance. Is having liability insurance mandatory for inclusion in the S37(2) Contractor Agreement or simply best practice? This is asked in the context of having to appoint developing contractors who would likely not have any insurance, either personal or business. Your insights will be appreciated.
