Work Health Safety Act
Under the NT Work Health and Safety Act we must ensure the health and safety of all workers. This includes contractors while they are on our sites.
A contractor is a worker who carries out work for us and but is not directly employed by us.
Duty of Care
The primary duty of care for health and safety at a workplace sits with the Person Conducting a Business or Undertaking (PCBU). Territory Generation has a duty to ensure—so far as is reasonably practicable—the health and safety of all workers engaged to work for us. This duty is owed to a PCBU’s workers, including you as a contractor or subcontractor.
Contractors also have a duty of care as workers under the WHS Act. As a worker, while at work, you have a duty to:
- Take reasonable care for your own health and safety
- Take reasonable care that your acts or omissions do not adversely affect the health and safety of other persons
- Comply, so far as you are reasonably able, with any reasonable instruction given by the Person Conducting a Business or Undertaking (PCBU)
- Cooperate with any reasonable policy or procedure of the PCBU relating to health and safety at the workplace.
It is important that as a Contractor you understand the role and specific work activities you have been contracted to perform. This includes being aware of your health and safety rights and responsibilities as well as Territory Generations expectations and requirements.
