As part of regular building maintenance, management and compliance tasks there will be the need to bring contractors onto the parish to undertake works. 

Larger capital projects and schemes of work will be managed by an architect or other specialist but for smaller maintenance tasks or checks it may be the parish that is the main contact for the contractor. 

In order to ensure the safety of all contractors and those using your parish buildings and site it is important that you share key information with the contractor. 

The exchange of information form and the guidance template are a useful tool to help you do this. 

Fill in the form about your parish, send it in advance to any contractor coming to do works, then get them to sign it when they arrive and keep it as proof you shared the information with them.
