‌Contractors and others who may not be familiar with the risks in Unit laboratories or other Unit rooms need particular safety measures to be in place to ensure their safety and the safety of others.  Contractors, including other external and internal unfamiliar staff may be carrying out a range of maintenance, servicing work or other projects.  These may be contracted by the relevant Unit directly or employees of/contracted by Buildings & Estates, CELT, ISS, etc.  

Because of this risk a specific policy (QA 121 Contractor Safety in Laboratories and Other Unit Rooms ) has been develpoed for NUI Galway Units.

As set out in this Policy, in advance of such work within your Unit, it must be risk assessed and the necessary controls put in place.  This should be done in consultation with the relevant contractor (where applicable) and employees.  Please use the resources listed below:
