The County of Newell has developed a comprehensive Contractor Safety Program for all contracted workers, including prime contractors, sub-contractors, service contractors and consultants.  The program clearly defines and communicates the responsibilities of all workplace parties involved in the program’s administration and implementation.  Corporate Safety Services is a resource to assist and facilitate the Contractor Safety Program.

The County of Newell is committed to ensuring that employee safety is an integral component of departmental activities. In order to meet our loss prevention objectives and to satisfy our legislated responsibilities, we believe that having a contractor safety program is an essential element of our overall Health & Safety Management System.

The County of Newell has prepared the “Contractor General Health and Safety Orientation” guidelines to assist contractors in establishing and maintaining an acceptable safety program. The information contained within is to serve as an example of minimum requirements for an effective contractor safety program.
