All external contractors working in the building must have authorization from H&R. There are two types of authorization general and minor works.
Minor Works covers low risk activities such as catering, copier servicing, coffee and other deliveries, flower maintenance etc. H&R will not require to see insurance and WCB for these companies but you are strongly urged to check both in case an accident happens while they are in your space. If they are uninsured liability could fall on your organization. Each Tenant has an annual Work Authorization Permit (WAP) for minor works which lists the companies covered and times they may enter their space. This list may be added to or amended at any time by contacting the H&R Service Line.
All other work requires a regular Work Authorization Permit (WAP) to be completed.
If you have contractors who may need to be called in at short notice, ie when critical equipment fails, an annual WAP may be issued. Annual WAPs will only be issued up until the expiry date of the insurance.
