Coles Myer Contractor Induction
NB: WE are not associated with Myer in any way – if you have any issues with this process then you will need to contact them directly.
The Contractor is responsible for ensuring that all Personnel have appropriate qualifications and are provided with adequate information, instruction and training prior to commencing work on MYER premises.
The Contractor will ensure that none of its Personnel undertake work unless they hold a valid licence, permit, certificate of competency or qualification as per MYER’s requirements and the laws of the relevant jurisdiction(s).

MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS OBLIGATIONS
- The Contractor will discuss and agree with MYER the safety aspects of the contract prior to commencement of the Work and agrees that the Contractor is responsible to ensure that all Works undertaken comply with the relevant occupational health and safety laws.
- Minors accompanying the Contractor’s Personnel will not be allowed on MYER sites (unless those minors are Personnel of the Contractor).
- The Contractor is responsible for completing and supervising tasks using work practices which (subject to relevant laws) are acceptable to Myer
- The Contractor is responsible for completing and supervising tasks in a manner which does not place the Personnel, Myer employees or customers or anyone else at risk.
- Any incidents (which includes any near misses) involving the Contractor at a MYER site must be immediately reported to the Site Manager or Delegate.
- The Contractor must ensure that the Site Manager approves the expected time of entry and the period for site access. If access is required beyond the site’s normal trading hours, arrangements for after hours access are to be made with the same Site Manager, or their Delegate.
- Vehicles must use only recognised entrances and exits when entering or leaving car parks. Speed limits must be observed in car parks. The Contractor must only park in those areas designated by the Site Manager.
- Safety signs and equipment must be provided where a hazard results from work undertaken. Safety signs must be obeyed and adequate safety equipment used for the purpose intended.
Work Method Statements (“WMS”)
A WMS must be prepared by the Contractor for all Works and must describe the Works to be completed, outline the steps involved and identify associated hazards and the risk control measures that will be implemented to eliminate or reduce risk.
The Contractor must ensure that all Personnel have a copy of the completed WMS (which must be provided to MYER on request), and must ensure that Personnel can demonstrate an understanding and successful implementation of all control measures outlined in the WMS.
If the Contractor is carrying out routine work, one WMS is sufficient for as long as site conditions remain unchanged.
Contractor Safety Management Plan
A Contractor Safety Management Plan is required for all new stores/sites, refurbishment works, NSW high isk works (as defined in NSW Occupational Health and Safety Regulations) and national/regional periodic and service contracts.
A copy of the pro forma Contractor Safety Management Plan can be obtained from the Site Manager on request.
Corrective Action Report (CAR)
Where an instance of a non-compliance is noted by MYER, a CAR will be issued to the Contractor. The Contractor must propose corrective methods and steps that are reasonably acceptable to MYER and implement them within the timeframe specified in the CAR. Both parties will act reasonably in seeking to reach agreement on the relevant timeframe in each case.
The completed CAR must be returned to the Site Manager or Delegate for review.
Audits of the Contractor’s safety management systems may be conducted by MYER to assess the level of compliance with its obligations to MYER and under relevant laws. The Contractor must make available all premises, systems, Personnel, documentation and information necessary to enable MYER to ascertain the Company’s level of compliance.
Spotchecks will be conducted by the Site Manager or Delegate to ensure that the Contractor complies with the risk controls and other requirements outlined in the WMS, this document and all other documents to which this document refers.
