Contractor Safety

Safety is YVR's top priority. We maintain rigorous standards to ensure our contractors understand our safety standards.

Contractor Safety Pre-Qualification

YVR has established a Contractor Safety Management Program. Work must follow our safety requirements, applicable legislation and good industry practices.

All contractors working for YVR must pre-qualify through ComplyWorks. Stakeholder (airline and/or tenant) contractors need to pre-qualify if the project will impact operational areas.

What is ComplyWorks?

ComplyWorks is a third-party contractor compliance management provider. They charge a separate registration and annual subscription fee. This fee is not covered by YVR.

How Do I Register with ComplyWorks?

All Contractors wanting to be added to the Approved Contractor list are required to have a YVR representative log into ComplyWorks and use the “add a contractor” function imbedded within the program. The appropriate YVR representative will review your request and notify ComplyWorks. You will receive an email from ComplyWorks with further instructions.

For more information, please contact YVR Construction Safety or ComplyWorks representative Samantha Wilde.

Contractor Safety Orientation

Our Contractor Safety Orientation is available through an online computer-based training module. All contractors and sub-trades working for the Airport Authority and employees, visitors and other personnel accessing construction projects must complete the online orientation before arriving on site.

In order to complete the orientation, contractors must log onto the Contractor Safety Orientation site, complete the registration form and follow these steps:

  • Create a username and password.
  • Enter your name, address, email and phone number.
  • If your company is not in the dropdown box, enter it in the “Other” box.
  • Enter your title; if your title is not in the dropdown box, enter it in the “Other” box.
  • Enter your RAIC number (this is a 6 digit number starting with YVR: YVR123456). If you do not have a RAIC number, enter YVR000000 (six zeros).
  • Enter the name and email of your manager/supervisor.

Once you’ve completed the orientation, print your certificate and wallet card. The wallet card must be made available upon request to any YVRAA employee or representative.
