SiteWise is an online contractor pre-qualification system that grades a contractor's Health and Safety capability and makes it available to principal and main contractor organisations during the tendering process.
Having this information available helps us assess your company's health and safety commitments and systems, and ensures our minimum level of health and safety knowledge and compliance is met.
SiteWise was initially developed for the Christchurch rebuild, where many small contractors needed real support to improve their safety systems and actions. Since development, it has been improved and is now used as a contractor health and safety pre-qualification system across many different industries.
Many organisations now use SiteWise to make informed contractor selections, making the tendering and contracting process simpler and more efficient for everyone.
Anyone wishing to be considered for contract work at the Council will need to complete the SiteWise online questionnaire regarding their health and safety systems.
The questionnaires are independently assessed by SiteWise's qualified health and safety professionals. The assessment will result in a grade, and a detailed report is provided to you, along with any suggested improvements (if needed).
It's easy to register, and we are available to help guide you to get started.
Higher grades mean you can better demonstrate your commitment to good health and safety practices to potential work providers.
Achieve assessment results which are recorded in a traffic light grading system in the database, making it easier for principals and main contractors to see your businesses performance at a glance.
Access independent and cost effective advice on how your business health and safety procedures stack up, and how you can improve your practices quickly and easily.
Assessment results are valid for a year, so you can avoid having to provide evidence of health and safety systems, processes and competence on a project-by-project basis, saving you time.
It's easy to register on sitewise.
The annual cost of registration is $180 + GST.
Complete and submit a brief online questionnaire and provide some supporting information.

We are here to help you get started.
Waimakariri District Council will accept alternative forms of health and safety pre-qualification, so long as they include an external audit of the contractor's health and safety systems, and are recognised as having industry credibility.
