All contractors are responsible for performing the work of contracts in conformance with all environmental, health and safety laws and regulations. Contractors shall be subject to provisions of this Contractor Policy, which has been prepared for the protection and safety of Calvin College students, staff, faculty, neighbors and property, recognizing that contractor’s work can potentially affect the safety of personnel and property. The Contractor Policy shall be provided to contractors to communicate the availability of hazard information for college properties and to outline Calvin’s safety and environmental procedures.
At Calvin College, we believe that every employee, student and guest is entitled to a safe and healthful workplace. We are committed to protecting ourselves, the environment, and complying with governmental regulations. Because a contractor’s work on college premises can potentially affect the safety of Calvin students, staff, faculty, neighbors and property, the college is committed to hiring contractors who take the safety of our community and environment as seriously as we do. We are providing the following safety manual to remind you of some of your specific responsibilities in this regard. The information provided within this manual is advisory in nature and is intended to supplement, not replace the contractor’s safety or environmental procedures or requirements.
We expect that our contractors will train, supervise, and direct their employees to be mindful of the safety of Calvin’s students, staff, faculty, neighbors and property when performing work on Calvin’s premises. This policy does not address, and is not intended to abrogate or assume responsibility for, the contractor’s duty to its employees. Nor does this policy provide an exhaustive outline of laws, ordinances or regulations governing environmental, health and safety compliance. Rather, it is provided solely to communicate the availability of hazard information for college properties and to outline Calvin’s safety and environmental procedures.
