Housing New Zealand Corporation
“Every day, hundreds of contractors are working on Housing NZ properties, so it is critical that we know how good their safety practices are. We compared a range of prequalification options, and Prequal gave us the level of assurance we were looking for as part of our overall contractor management programme . Prequals five risk based assessments are comprehensive and provides Housing NZ with a robust level of assurance.”
Tarniya Comrie - National Health, Safety, and Security Manager, Housing NZ Corporation
"Working with the PREQUAL client Steering Group introduced NIWA to industry approaches to risk based pre-qualification of contractor safety management ability.
Previously each of our clients in the power generation sector required different pre-qualification approaches which frustrated our operational resources.
As a result of the high levels of collaboration between PREQUAL users, NIWA has formed close safety partnerships and been able to extend the PREQUAL model to our own supply chain."
Carl Stent - National Health and Safety Manager, NIWA
Fonterra Co-operative Group Limited
“Fonterra has been engaged with PREQUAL for a number of years and we consider it a staple in our contractor management/engagement journey. More recently, we feel that it is also a good tool in support of our journey with the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015.”
Julio Rodriguez – GM Health and Safety, Global Operations, Fonterra Co-operative Group Limited
PREQUAL allows us to prioritise our resources towards the companies who need greater assistance to work safely and effectively upon our site. As an initial screening process, it allows us to gain a better understanding of the H&S culture within new organisations which is essential for a safe outcome.
