Multiple Councils throughout New Zealand have teamed up with SHE Health and Safety Software NZ Ltd to develop a streamlined pre-qualification process. The system is 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:
- 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, with insurance
renewals conducted annually. Should these expire in the system, Councils will not allow you
to carry out work for them until renewals are received.
The fees (paid online through SHE) are:
|Less than five employees||$280|
|Between five and 24 employees||$525|
|25 and more employees||$1025|
|Insurance renewals||No cost|
