There are several requirements for contractors and subcontractors working at Flinders. Please read through this page and the Contractor Safety Guide, which outline the information you will need.
Please also refer to the Contractor safety page.
There is a registration and induction process for you to follow prior to starting work at Flinders.
Please note that all employees who will work on site will also require a FAN and will need to be associated with your registered company before starting. Once your staff have a FAN, you can link them to your company record.
Employees will then need to complete the online induction to the University via the portal or the app. You may also need to complete a site-specific induction. There are step-by-step details on the Contractor home page. The induction will give you key information about the University and requirements while working on site.
Note that your subcontractors currently have the option to register their business separately or to continue to complete the online induction and check-in and out with your head contractor.
At this stage, subcontractors can choose to register their business with the University, following the process outlined on the home page.
There are benefits to doing this:
If you choose not to register with us, you will need to complete the online induction.
Your contact person at the University will complete a site-specific work area induction with you prior to commencing work on site. This is an opportunity to identify the hazards that may exist, and to discuss and agree on how to manage these. The induction will remain current for 12 months or for the duration of the project.
You will both sign off the Work Area Induction Checklist.
Your contact at Flinders will keep a copy on file.
After this initial site induction, contractors are then responsible for ensuring that any other people working on site, including subcontractors, are locally inducted and that this is documented.
When working on site, you will need to check in when you arrive at a Flinders site and check out when you leave for the day. You can do this on the Now Agent app on your mobile device. Please see the instructions on the home page and the quick reference guide.
If you are a subcontractor and choose not to register your business directly with the University, you will need to check in and out of site with your head contractor.
Please read the information below to familiarise yourself with the site rules at Flinders.
