Prequalification – What you need to know

What is it?

Have you been asked to complete an external pre-qualification and you’re scrambling for all the information that you need to get through it?

Going through a pre-qualification process helps to determine how well contractors manage health and safety. It asks businesses to demonstrate an effective health and safety management system and for information on managing specific risks. 

You can also use pre-qualification as an opportunity to assist and support businesses to improve their health and safety practices.

How to complete it

To successfully complete a pre-qualification it is important that you have an active health and safety system. This includes evidence to show that your health and safety system is working effectively.

You only need to complete a pre-qualification if you have been asked to. You don’t need to complete a pre-qualification from an external provider unless you have been requested to, this process can easily be managed internally. 

Our Advisory Team can step you through the typical questions you would see in an external pre-qualification and advise you on how the HazardCo system can support your application. E.g managing inductions on site, communicating with your workers, how to complete risk management.
