PREQUAL Client Steering Group
PREQUAL combines the experience and expertise of some of New Zealand’s leading Health and Safety Practitioners to provide an effective and affordable cross industry contractor pre-qualification service. It has been bench-marked against both international best practice and local experience.
It was developed with reference to pre-qualification processes at BHP, Rio Tinto, Construction Line, the Contractor Health and Safety Scheme in the UK (CHAS), the Federal Safety Commissioner, Carter Holt Harvey, Fonterra and Air NZ.
To ensure PREQUAL continues to meet the needs of industry, a Steering Group made up of industry representatives (many of whom were involved in the original development) meet regularly to guide the ongoing direction of PREQUAL.
The Steering Group currently consists of senior health and safety and procurement leaders from Housing New Zealand (Kāinga Ora), Auckland Council, Refining New Zealand, Air New Zealand, Fonterra, and Meridian Energy.
