Health and Safety pre-qualification
ISN is the provider of the Health and Safety pre-qualification system for Auckland Transport. If you wish to undertake contract works or services where H&S risk is considered to be high, you will need to be H&S prequalified via ISNetworld.
If your company is new to ISNetworld, there will be a nominal fee for your subscription, based on the size of your organisation. To find out more, you can call ISN on 0800 443 805 or visit their website. If your company is a current subscriber to ISNetworld, there is no additional fee.
Suppliers must hold ‘Approved’ status with ISN prior to contract award, unless otherwise waived by AT at its sole discretion. If you are awarded a contract where works or services are considered to have high H&S risk, you must maintain the subscription with ISN for the duration of the contract.
The ConstructSafe competency assessment scheme provides the New Zealand construction industry with a framework for individuals to prove health and safety competence.
It allows construction sites to reduce the potential for untrained or inexperienced workers from creating hazardous situations for themselves or others. It helps raise the health and safety standards and creates a safer and more competent New Zealand workforce.
ConstructSafe provides a consistent and transparent way to independently check the competency of any person on site, regardless of their employer. It provides all of us with reassurance that those that are working on our sites are competent and safe to do so. ConstructSafe is not a training course; it helps us to ensure that training programmes meet the needs of our industry.
From 1 July 2017, the scheme has been an AT requirement for new and existing projects and contracts. All AT construction contractors will be required to be registered and operating the ConstructSafe Tier 1 competency assessment framework for any construction category contracts.
ConstructSafe is an initiative run through the Construction Health and Safety New Zealand (CHASNZ). For more information, please see their website.
