The safety of our Contractors is an essential part of the Health and Safety Management System at Thunder Bay Hydro. Protecting workers and organizations from risk is a commitment we take very seriously. That is why contractors are required to pre-qualify before they are invited to submit a tender on certain contracts. All contracts that require pre-qualification are advertised in local media.
We use Contractor Compliance for the pre-qualification and ongoing maintenance of certifications for our contractors. The Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA) of Ontario clearly defines the legal requirements and key duties of an owner/ employer when contracting out work or services. This system funnels all information that you need to provide to both ourselves and other local contracting entities to let them know about your Health & Safety Program. This system will be the record of proof that shows you and your workers are up to date on all necessary training and documentation required by legislations, regulations and us as your customers.
Contractor Compliance is a facilitation tool that allows customers and contracted vendors to work together to set, comply, and monitor Health, Safety, and Environmental requirements in the pursuit of worker safety and compliance.
