Data submitted should be revalidated to ensure that it applies to the local
subcontractor and not to its parent company or an affiliate.
The DOE contractor shall inform subcontractors of the facility's safety requirements by
clearly outlining safety performance requirements in its bid package, which will be used
as part of the selection process. The DOE contractor shall request specific safety
information from the subcontractor to compare with qualification criteria to establish
contractor responsibility. The subcontractor should be advised of the qualification criteria

requirements the DOE contractor has for its own employees.
Contract Safety Language

establish who provides the required safety and health equipment and training, and
shall define subcontractor documentation requirements.

along with the requested material, for thoroughness and ability to meet or exceed
the facility's minimum safety and health qualification criteria. The
subcontractor's ability to safely perform the specified work should be a
