Contractor Safety Management

About Contractor Safety Management

Whitehaven Coal has introduced an online system to manage the safety and compliance of contractors and their employees working on our sites.

At Whitehaven Coal, the health and safety of people on our sites is our priority. We’ve implemented an online contractor safety management system to categorise and manage contractors based on their work on our sites. The system will reduce risk and improve safety as part of our shared Work Health and Safety duty of care with contractors.

How does the system work?

All contracting companies working on our sites must first register in the Whitehaven Coal Contractor Management System. Companies must then register their employees who’ll work on our sites, and ensure they have the correct inductions.

To register, you’ll provide company details and important supporting documents like insurances and licences. You may also need to submit information on your Safety Management System (SMS) for review.

After your company is registered in the system, you will also register your workers, book their inductions, and order their site access cards.
