Contractor Health And Safety Pre-Qualification Scheme

Waikato and Bay of Plenty Councils have teamed up with SHE Software NZ Ltd to develop a new streamlined pre-qualification process. The system will be made available to all Councils throughout New Zealand to pre-qualify contractors. This will ensure Councils are using contractors who operate with effective health and safety management systems and are holding current and relevant insurances.

This system will help us 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.

Benefits to contractors include:

  • easier system that will enable contractors to be pre-qualified for multiple Councils through the one process
  • improved relationships between contractors and Councils
  • contributing to the WorkSafe New Zealand’s Statement of Intent strategy to reduce injuries by 2020

This process requires contractors and sub-contractors who carry out services for (participating) Councils, to apply to become pre-qualified every two years.

The fees (paid online) are:

Number of Employees Number of Insurances Fee (excl GST)
Less than five Unlimited $280
Between five and twenty-four Unlimited $525
Twenty-five and more  Unlimited $1025

As contractors become pre-qualified, company/industry details will be accessible on a database.
This provides visibility to contractors and Council staff to identify who is approved, assisting with the tendering process and Council procurement.

NOTE: Please ensure you have an email address prior to commencing your application as this will be required to complete the process.

TIP: Consider setting up a folder on your desktop to save all evidence required to enable easy uploading into the application.
