Hauraki District Council is committed to working with our contractors to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of our contractors, staff and residents.
Contractor Health And Safety Pre-Qualification Scheme
All contractors and sub-contractors who do physical work for HDC, and/or visit any of our hazardous worksites must have current prequalification through the SHE PreQual system before commencing any work. Renewal is required every two years.
To register or renew registration visit the SHE PRE-QUAL Contractor Pre-Qualification website.
Waikato and Bay of Plenty have teamed up with SHE Pre-Qual to streamline the pre-qualification process.
The system is made available to all Councils throughout NZ to pre-qualify contractors. The system helps us to meet our responsibilities to ensure that contractors, working for or on Council assets and/or supplying services, have effective health and safety management systems to prevent harm to people and the environment or damage to property.
The process requires contractors, to apply every two years. As contractors become pre-qualified, company/industry details will be accessible on a database, providing visibility to contactors and Council staff to identify who is approved, assisting with the tendering process and Council procurement. Link to the SHE database is above. In the Filtered Quick Reports HDC is on Page 2.
Tōtika is the Health & Safety Prequalification Scheme that has been developed and implemented by Construction H&S (CHASNZ) to create a standard for all health and safety pre-qualification systems in the Construction sector.
A contractor under PREQUAL Tōtika will fit into one of four categories based on size, primary work activity, role and maximum contract value. There are five Contractor prequalification categories. Category S – sole trader, CAT 1- employs no more than 20 people, and not high or very high risk work, CAT 2 – employs no more than 200 people and not very high risk work, CAT 3 – employs more than 200 people takes on contracts with value in excess of NZ$20 million and primary work is very high risk. Then there is the Principal/Lead Contractors/Design category.
