Working at our facilities
When a supplier is required to physically work at a General Dynamics Armament and Technical Products facility, the following actions are required:
The supplier must comply with all safety and security regulations and shall take all precautions required by GDATP, or otherwise necessary to prevent the occurrence of any injury to person or property during the progress of such work and shall promptly inform GDATP of any injury or damage that occurs. The supplier will also provide timely notice prior to introduction to the premises of any hazardous material, as defined in any Federal, state, or local law or ordinance or in any lawful order, rule or regulation there under applicable to the premises. The supplier will equip its employees, agents and subcontractors for the use of such hazardous material.
The supplier will implement and maintain a program for achieving the objective of a drug-free workforce. The program will be written and include as a minimum drug testing when employees are newly-hired or re-hired after a break in service, employees who are involved in accidents or unsafe practices, or reasonable suspicion exists that an employee is using illegal drugs. The supplier shall provide GDATP with a copy of its written program with its bid or proposal. The supplier will make available for GDATP’s inspection at reasonable times and places all of the records relating to its drug-free program.
When any of the supplier’s employees require unescorted access to operating areas of GDATP facilities for more than 30 days in any 365 day period; access to one or more of GDATP’s computer networks; or access to any other areas of information as designated by GDATP, a background investigation will be conducted by GDATP prior to the commencement of performance.
Prior to the commencement of any work, the supplier must complete a Certificate of Citizenship (SCM-FRM-201.0.3) with regard to all employees and subcontractors that will perform work at GDATP Facilities or will have access to technical data, so that GDATP may determine what level of access to facilities and technical data is allowed in order to comply with United States law or certain government contract requirements.
The supplier and any subcontractors will carry the appropriate amount of state-required Worker’s Compensation and Employee Liability insurance to cover any liability on account of accidents to their respective employees. The supplier and any subcontractors will carry a minimum of $1,000,000 of Comprehensive General Liability insurance and a minimum of $1,000,000 of Comprehensive Automobile Liability Insurance covering any liability on account of accidents arising out to the operations of the supplier and any subcontractors and resulting in bodily injury, including death, being sustained by any person or persons, or in any damage to property.
