Making arrangements for designers or other contractors to carry out work

If you arrange for a designer to prepare a design or for a contractor to carry out construction work, you have to be reasonably satisfied they are competent and are adequately resourced to carry out their health and safety responsibilities. This means that where you arrange for a designer to be notated to a contractor, when you nominate a preferred contractor or arrange for any designer or contractor to undertake work, you also have to be reasonably satisfied of their competence and resources.

The Approved Code of Practice and the HSC publication A guide to managing health and safety in construction provide detailed guidance on the issues of competence and adequate resources for health and safety.
