WHAT IS A SAFETY FILE?

This file is also known as a 'Contractor Health and Safety File'. It is a record of information that focuses on the management of health and safety by contractors and subcontractors on work sites such as construction sites or a client's premises. It is 'site-specific, meaning it is only relevant to the site it is used on. It is compiled based on the client's and the site's safety specifications.

The content of the safety file must be maintained for the duration of the project and must be communicated to all persons working on the project in order to ensure that all persons are aware of and conform to the health and safety requirements of the project.

This file ensures that all relevant health and safety details and information required to ensure all contractors and subcontractors work on a client's worksite (or premises) safely, is consolidated into one main point of reference.

WHY IS THIS FILE IMPORTANT?
