Our key priority is to ensure the mutual safety of our respective workforces and anyone else who might be affected (visitors, pupils, those in our care, people living nearby and other members of the public). The rules form an integral part of our arrangements for effective communication, coordination and cooperation to ensure mutual safety.
Fife Council contractor rules apply to:
- large and small construction projects
- other works and maintenance (including decoration) contracts (including window cleaning)
which take place within the boundaries of our properties. Separate rules apply (see below) for Housing Projects and Repairs.
These rules do not apply to self-contained Projects (including design and build) on green or brown field sites where there is no significant overlap with our day-to-day business. For those Projects, the Contractor/Principal Contractor will develop his own rules in accordance with the requirements of the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations.
Roads and Street Works
Separate Rules apply for roads and street works and apply equally to in-house and externally appointed contractors.
The term ‘Contractor’ extends to Fife Council Services, e.g. Building Services, Roads Construction Operations and Community Services (Parks, Streets and Open Spaces).
Information for Contractors
Our contractor rules and any additional requirements are stipulated in our tender documents and will usually form part of our contract specification and contractual requirements. These should in turn be referenced and adopted within any Construction Phase Plan you develop. (Additional special conditions of contract and rules may also apply).
We have 3 sets of published contractor rules for:
|Type of Project||Rule Set Reference|
|Set A||Non- Domestic projects and repairs||OHS-C-41.G1|
|Set B||Housing projects and repairs||OHS-C-41.G2|
|Set C||Roads and street works||TE HS 04 CDM 2015 - 06|
Please make sure to select the rule set appropriate to your project or tender
