Abstract Large firms often contract tasks such as installation, maintenance, waste disposal or cleaning of tanks to smaller firms. These jobs can be particularly risky because they are done on site and under conditions which are unfamiliar to the workers carrying them out. This booklet is aimed at small enterprises or independent workers involved in contract work and outlines the safety and health aspects to be taken into consideration when performing contract work for larger enterprises. Contents: general information on safety and health; legislation; what needs to be done in order to comply with legislation (health and safety policy statement; hazard evaluation; information and training; reporting of occupational accidents; insurance coverage; supervision; monitoring safety and health performance); self-appraisal check list. Replaces CIS 98-1235.
