    I am an owner in a large strata plan. At the latest AGM the Owners Corporation agreed to enter into a contact with a sole trader to provide a part time building manager, cleaning services, limited property monitoring services and limited gardening services.  A condition precedent of the contract is that the sole trader provides before execution of the contract, all relevant insurances including public liability up to $20m, Workers Compensation and Professional Indemnity up to $5m. The EC have called an EGM and there is now a motion to remove the requirement for Professional Indemnity insurance. I can not seem to find or get an answer to the following


    What insurances should a Building Manager have in place?


    What happens if a contractor is injured and the Building Manager has not complied with WH&S requirements?  Of particular concern is that under the contract the Building Manager must comply with all relevant laws, for example under WH&S – conduct site inductions for all contractors, ensure all contractors insurances are in place and they are qualified to do the work requested and safe work method statements have been provided and are being followed. 


    Does Workers Compensation need to nominate all areas of services being provided?
