On May 25, 2012 signatories of the Cooperation for Safety in Construction signed “The requirements of occupational health and safety”. This document describes expectations of general contractors from subcontractors in the area of safety requirements. “The requirements of occupational health and safety” are an appendix to the deal between general contractors and their business partners – subcontractors. They unify deals between signatories of the Cooperation. They are a part of a deal between the procurer and the contractor, who is obliged to organise and run the works in a way that guarantees safety and healthy work conditions, including securing materials, that are necessary to finish the given works in safety way. Moreover they oblige subcontractors to cooperate with signatories of the Cooperation in the area of OHS – during preparing as well as realisation of the building.

“The requirements of occupational health and safety” are based on the Polish law and internal safety procedures of the signatories of the Cooperation. Many subcontractors cooperate with several general contractors. Unifying documents of the OHS, which is used during cooperation with companies, will help to build homogenous standards of work on the construction sites in Poland.
