Our commitment to SiteWise
We are committed to using the pre-qualification system SiteWise to rate our contractors’ health and safety system.
SiteWise is a software application developed by SiteSafe NZ Inc. It enables contractors to submit their health and safety systems and have them reviewed and assessed independently. The SiteWise database can be accessed by registered principals, allowing them to identify compliance and competence.
SiteWise gives you access to independent and cost-effective advice on where your business stands in relation to health and safety and how to improve. Assessment results are recorded using a traffic light system, which gives us confidence when awarding contracts.
The assessment results are valid for one year – meaning you may not have to provide evidence of your health and safety system on a project by project basis.
Where SiteWise may not be appropriate for your business, you must meet the following criteria:
- Have no more than two employees.
- Work is considered low risk – ie Unlikely to cause death or serious injury.
To become a Council approved contractor:
- Read and sign the declaration in the Contractor Handbook.
- Complete Form 1.
- Then, we will invite you to join SiteWise, or send you relevant exemption paperwork.
All documents are to be submitted to Health and Safety Advisor, Laurie Robertson at [email protected].
Alternatively, you can drop the documents in to our Main Office at 29 Bowler Ave, Gore.
