Contractor Online Induction

The University of Sydney is committed to providing a safe working environment. This commitment extends to all contractors, subcontractors and suppliers of services to our campuses and properties.

The Contractor Online Induction has been developed to outline the requirements of contractors undertaking works (construction, maintenance, etc.) for or on behalf of the University.

As a prior condition to commencing any work within one of our campuses, contractors are required to complete the Contractor Online Induction (please follow the steps below) to ensure an understanding of the university’s WHS management systems and to provide specific rules for working on site.
