Abstract:

Newport News Shipbuilding was contracted by the National Shipbuilding Research Program NSRP to develop a model contractor health and safety program for shipyards. During this project several documents were prepared in a format which would facilitate safety and health management of contractor activities at shipyards. The elements of a good contractor health and safety management program include management support for the program, a procedure for selection and evaluation of contractors, orientation of contractor personnel to the shipyard, methods for monitoring contractor performance, and overall evaluation of the program. This report provides sample documents that incorporate these elements in a comprehensive program. Shipyards may use these materials as templates to assist them in developing and implementing their own contractor health and safety programs.
