Under the OH&S Act a Prime Contractor is required if there are "2 or more employers involved in work at a worksite at the same time". Whenever a municipality hires some contractors to work for them, as owners, they will be the prime contractor at a work site. However they have the option of transferring the prime contractor responsibilities to another party at the worksite. This course will teach participants what is required of a prime contractor and how to manage these responsibilities. It will also explain expectations of municipalities who opt to transfer prime contractor responsibilities.
