Vendor/Supplier Briefing

Vendors/suppliers should be briefed on the relevant safety policies and procedures. Briefings may occur in several forms and should take place well before the actual activity undertaken by the vendor/supplier. Evidence should be present that such briefings took place.

Vendors should at least sign an acknowledgement that safety policies and procedures have been conveyed, have been understood and are accepted by the individual.

It is advisable to conduct a test, where applicable and desirable, to ensure that the briefing is clearly understood by those who attended.

Where vendors/suppliers are deployed for longer term, considerations should be given for refresher briefings.
