Safety for contractors

If a contractor performs work for Gasunie it will be subject to the same standards as Gasunie’s own staff. All work must be carried out in a safe and environmentally aware manner. Risks must be dealt with at source as far as possible. Any remaining risks must be described and communicated. Contractors, subcontractors and their staff must all be familiar with Gasunie’s Health, Safety and Environmental policy and must act accordingly.
The contractor must strive to keep subcontracting limited to two levels and must keep an up-to-date register of the subcontractors and the number of subcontracting levels.
When performing work together with another party, the main contractor is responsible for compliance with the Working Conditions Act (Arbowet). Gasunie’s specific HSE requirements are laid down in CSA-38-N.
