Pre-qualified under the Health & Safety at Work Act (2015)

Why pre-qualification?

One of businesses’ biggest risks is the use of contractors, who are often engaged to undertake non-core work, but which impinges directly on the core operation of the organisation. Managing contractors effectively and identifying safe contractors is crucial.

The Health and Safety at Work Act (2015) requires PCBU’s to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety of workers. Workers includes contractors to a client organisation, their employees and their subcontractors. Client organisations want to ensure that their contractors have the required systems and capability to keep people safe.

Providing a robust contractor prequalification process will not in itself ensure good contractor health and safety outcomes. It is, however, recognised as a vital first component of a comprehensive contractor health and safety management system.
