Workplace Safety and Health Legislation requires a Prime Contractor to be designated on all construction projects where more than one employer or self-employed person(s) are involved in work on site at the same time. The Prime Contractor is granted overall responsibility to ensure compliance with WSH regulations at the worksite. Worksite activities need to be coordinated so that the work of one employer does not create unsafe conditions for the workers of another employer on the site. CSAM’s Prime Contractor course will focus on providing companies with effective guidelines to assist them in fulfilling their responsibilities. This course will examine a Prime Contractor’s legislated requirements and focus on developing practical methods to meet these requirements.
