Outside Contractor Safety
Providence College provides a safe and healthful environment for students, faculty, and staff, as well as to all other visitors to our campus. This environment is obtained through rigorous and consistently applied programs that anticipate, identify, evaluate and control hazards that are an inherent part of maintaining our facility.
As approved Providence College vendors, all outside contractors play important roles in assisting us in maintaining a safe and accident free work environment. As such, any and all contractors working on campus projects are required to adhere to the following guidelines:
- All contractors must ensure that their employees are properly and/or legally trained and licensed prior to beginning their onsite work.
- All contractors must comply with all Federal, State, and local safety and environmental standards and procedures at all times. These standards include, but are not limited to, the Federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) General Industry Standards (29 CFR 1910), and the Construction Industry Standard (29 CFR 1926); all applicable Federal, State and local environmental laws, regulations, and ordinances; all fire safety codes and regulation; and the Providence College Contractor’s Safety Manual (see below).
- All prospective construction and renovation contractors must submit their company Safety and Health program to the Office of Environmental, Health and Safety for review and acceptance. Also, prior to commencing work on campus, contractors must submit to the Providence College Health and Safet Coordinator, a project site-specific Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) and any other specific safety programs (confined space entry, respiratory protection, etc.) requested by the Office of Environmental, Health and Safety. You must receeve approval of your site-specific plans prior to beginning work.
