Approved Contractor Corporate Induction

Welcome to Coorong District Council’s Approved Contractor Registration and Corporate Induction. The completion of these documents forms part of the process to register and become an Approved Contractor with Council, and is a separate process to site inductions.

If you are a current contractor, welcome back! Council requires it’s contractors to complete an online corporate induction every three (3) years.  Contractors who want to remain on the Approved Contractors Register are invited to re-apply and agree to supply current insurance, registration and licences as they expire (or as requested by Council).

In accordance with the Work Health Safety (WHS) Act 2012, Coorong District Council has a legal responsibility to achieve a high level of pro-active work health and safety management during the application of contracts. To facilitate this, Coorong District Council is dedicated to a contractor management system which provides for the selection of contractors with appropriate safety controls, the exchange of information between Council and its contractors to facilitate the identification of hazards, risk management, and the appropriate monitoring of the contractors engaged by Council.

Coorong District Council recognises its obligation to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable:

  • The health and safety of workers engaged, or caused to be engaged by Council while the workers are at work in Council’s business or undertaking.
  • Eliminate risks to health and safety and if it is not reasonably practicable to eliminate risks to health and safety, to minimise those risks.
  • Consult, co-operate, and coordinate activities with other persons who have a duty in relation to the same matter.

The online corporate induction process takes approximately 30 minutes and is a mandatory requirement for any employee, subcontractor or personnel who may be working on a Council work site.

All employees should also have read and understood all relevant Council WHS Policies and Procedures.
