Large construction companies require SUB-CONTRACTORS to have a WHS Plan not just a SWMS.

Remember: As a Sub-Contractor, you are required by law to look after your employees and YOUR Sub-Contractors. It is  NOT the responsibility of the Principal Contractor to include your employees in THEIR Safety Plan.
