​Health and safety

We are committed to working with our contractors to ensure health and safety.

Contractors must have an adequate health and safety management system that includes:

  • safe systems of work
  • safe work environments
  • safe plant and equipment
  • adequate health and safety training and supervision.

All contractors undertaking work for us must declare their health and safety performance.

Contractors intending to undertake high risk work must demonstrate they have the appropriate resources, knowledge and expertise, and have had their health and safety system appraised against an acceptable external standard, commonly known as prequalification. We recognise valid external accreditation, such as AS/NZ 4801 or OHSAS 18001 and valid pre-qualification agents for prequalification.
