CENTRE LABOUR FORCE (CLF) is a licensed Odco Contracting® agency. All contractors working through CLF
are covered by WorkCover in the event of an injury occurring on site.
It is our responsibility not to send the contractors working through this agency into unsafe workplaces, and
under the Workcover Act, we can be found liable for contractor safety whilst in any workplace. However
we do not have control of your workplace and we do not have direct supervision of our on-hired
workforce. ‘The client’ has the responsibility to ensure that the workplace is safe for all workers, regardless
of whether they are employees or contractors.
Ensuring safe working environments for all workers requires identification, assessment and management
of risks relating to physical and non-physical aspects of work.
Under certain circumstances, the Workcover Authority may provide for the recovery of compensation from
other parties bearing liability when a significant injury occurs. In this case, the other party would be you. If
the authority chose to take such recovery action, we would be unable to prevent any such matters being
proceeded with. The degree of negligence, hence liability, is predominantly determined by the facts
available, particularly whether the end user could have known if the contractor may be exposed to injury
and what remedial actions were undertaken.
In many circumstances more than one person will be liable for breaches of Work Place Health and Safety.
We strongly emphasise the importance of maintaining a safe working environment. Managers and ,BR>
supervisors should be advised of their responsibilities and the possibilities of being held liable for any injury
in their workplaces.
In accordance with requirements under the relevant Work Place Health and Safety Act, we agree to provide
and maintain so far as practicable for all workers a working environment that is safe and without risks to
We agree that we will properly induct all contractors working in our workplace.
We agree that we will advise CENTRE LABOUR FORCE should any major changes in job description
be required of the contractors, so as to ensure they are properly briefed on such changes.
