Health and Safety Assessment for Housing New Zealand Tenders
Housing New Zealand (HNZ) regularly engages with contractors to undertake physical works (1) such as building, maintenance, civil works and demolition. Many of these carry health and safety risk which HNZ considers very seriously.
Every contractor engaged by HNZ is assessed for the quality of their Health and Safety practices, systems and training.
From 1 November 2017 the method for assessing contractor Health and Safety is changing.
HNZ is partnering with Impac PREQUAL to provide a Health and Safety pre-qualification assessment HNZ will use to evaluate the practices and systems of businesses tendering for work.
This includes contractors applying to join panels of prequalified suppliers and existing panel members.
Tenders listed on GETS after 1 November 2017 will include a pre-condition which requires Respondents to:
• Be registered with Impac PREQUAL;
• Have completed the Impac PREQUAL health and safety assessment; and
• Submit a copy of their Impac PREQUAL assessment report with the tender submission.
Further information on Impac PREQUAL and registering with them can be found here www.prequal.co.nz.
