Contractor Resources

Our top priority is the health and safety of our students, staff and any visitors to our campuses. We require contractors to review our Contractor Resources package before beginning maintenance or construction on College property. Please email to automatically receive a copy. It includes information about:

  • Contractor Safe Work Program
  • Contractor Safety Checklist and Checklist Definitions*
  • Internal Notice of Project
  • High Risk Work Permit and Procedure
  • Notification of Designated Substances
  • Electrical Rules and Regulations
  • Contractor Chemical Waste Disposal
  • Contractor Hazardous Material Spill

*The Contractor Health and Safety Checklist and Checklist Definitions must be reviewed and completed for every contractor engaged on behalf of Fanshawe College. Note the checklist must be updated at least biannually or whenever the scope of the work changes (e.g., before every new construction, renovation, demolition and equipment installation project).


Every contractor is responsible for ensuring that all prescribed safety measures and procedures are carried out. 


Projects that involve high-risk activity or designated substances must be overseen by Facilities Management.


This information is provided in order to help you avoid any unnecessary delays once work begins — whether to make inquiries or acquire an approval. Please take time to review the package and begin taking the required steps.
