This booklet explains your health and safety responsibilities and what we expect of you, your employees, and any subcontractors you engage with to carry out work on Council-owned sites.
You need to demonstrate that you understand and comply with the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015, and any associated regulations. Pre-qualification is valid for two years and is subject to performance.
The pre-qualification process tells us that you, your employees and your sub-contractors know how to operate your workplace and your worksites safely. This process is not a guarantee of work, however it may provide the contractor with an advantage in the selection process because they have already met the Council's prerequisite health and safety expectations.
Consultants who provide advice to Council may need to be Health and Safety pre-qualified.
No. Businesses and organisations that provide the Council with goods and services do not need to be Health and Safety pre-qualified.
Our Health and Safety Policy has been prepared in compliance with WorkSafe New Zealand's health and safety legislation and guidelines. It is also supported by a suite of associated policies, standard operating procedures, protocols and processes.
