Contractor Safety

Columbia University has developed a compliance guideline to ensure a safe and healthy environment for anyone performing services on campus. If you are a contractor, consultant, or a member of a maintenance company, this guideline is for you.

It is each company’s responsibility to comply with the codes and standards that govern their industry in addition to our compliance guideline. All partners must review our guidelines and submit evidence, via the acknowledgment form located at the end of the document, to their project manager, CUIMC liaison, or Campus Life Safety and Regulatory Compliance. 

We update these guidelines periodically to reflect changes in policies, lessons learned from incidents, code changes, and new restrictions from the New York City Fire Department and other regulatory agencies.
