This guidance is being provided to the Harvard community to help answer frequently asked questions (FAQs) related to EH&S requirements and best practices for service contractors that are working on-site, and to assist each school/unit to communicate and ensure adherence to relevant Harvard University COVID-19 safety protocols.
Hiring managers should familiarize themselves with Harvard University expectations for EH&S compliance and COVID-19 requirements and communicate these expectations to their service contractors by utilizing the following documents prior to starting work on-site:
- COVID-19 Service Contractor Checklist describes current COVID-19-specific requirements for service contractors and vendors working on-site.
- Service Contractor Safety Guide describes general Harvard University EH&S compliance and safety expectations for service contractors on campus and is referenced either explicitly or implicitly in Harvard University's contracting templates.
Please note that construction or renovation projects may have separate requirements. Visit COVID-19 Construction Support for more information on policies and procedures for construction projects.
