A Safety File is a combination of safety documents required to work on construction and other work sites. This file includes safe working practices as well as all site workers and Health and Safety Reps. It is a legal requirement to have a complete safety file prior to commencement of work on a specific site. The safety file is also required when there is a construction site handover between contractors or from contractor to owner.
