Contractor Heath & Safety

Management and Control of Service Providers*


It is the policy and expectation of the B&E Department that all Service Providers (regardless of works undertaken) will carry out their work in a safe manner. Service Providers must ensure the safety of their own workers but also the safety of all others on University of Limerick(UL) property such as UL staff, students and members of the public who may be affected by the Service Providers acts or omissions. The B&E Department further expects that all Service Providers will co-operate with us in the management of safety to ensure a safe working environment for all.

Prior to undertaking any work on UL property, all Service Providers must be approved by the B&E Department in accordance with our Service Provider/Contractor Management System. All Service Providers must undergo the B&E Service Provider Approval Process, which includes competency assessments where the Service Provider is engaged in Construction Works. The following minimum information must be supplied in order to be pre-approved:

  • Signed copy of their Company Safety Statement
  • Evidence of Insurances (All insurances must include an indemnity to University of Limerick)
  • Acceptance of B&E Minimum H&S Standards
  • Complete B&E Induction
  • Copy of staff training records


A Permit to Work must be issued to all Service Providers undertaking work on campus for or on behalf of the B&E Department.
