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 everyone using your parish buildings and site it is important that you share and receive key information with the contractor.

The managing contractors guidance below explains about the different steps to take as a parish when commissioning and managing small scale works and maintenance.

The exchange of information form and the guidance template are useful tools in sharing key information regarding the parish site. Fill in the form about your parish and send it in advance to any contractor coming to do works.

The contractor questionnaire allows the parish to collect key information from contactors before they undertake work at the parish.

Keep a copy of all forms sent and documents received as proof that information was shared and contractors were competent to undertake works.
