Contractor Safety System

About Contractor Safety System

By everyone owning safety we can create a business that achieves long term results.

Keeping everyone safe everyday is a key focus at Lion. No matter where our people are based, everyone who works with us should know our basic expectations when it comes to safety. Because it’s our people that makes us great.

Our Safety Essentials define what’s non-negotiable when it comes to safety. They are aligned to our high risk areas and focus on areas where our people have been injured.  They help our people make safe decisions, and help to keep everyone safe everyday.

To underscore and strengthen our safety and wellbeing commitments, contractors working for Lion must register and maintain their compliance in an online Contractor Safety Management System.

The system is managed on our behalf by Avetta.


Contractors will register both their business and workers in the Lion Contractor Safety System.

The process is logical and simple and is all completed in an online portal. We divide the process into two stages to make it as seamless as possible: 1. business registration, and 2. worker registration. Here are the basic steps:

  1. Create a profile

  2. Register your business

  3. Upload business insurances and documents for verification

  4. Register your workers

  5. Upload worker competencies and licences for verification

  6. Workers complete required training

Everything you enter and upload is verified by safety specialists. The Contractor Safety System guides you to reach and maintain compliance to work for Lion.
