CrestClean Gains Contractor Prequalification Status
CrestClean has gained Contractor Prequalification status with CPNZ Ltd.
Contractor Prequalification is becoming a common part of the tender process right around the world for work that requires good health and safety performance. It allows organisations engaging contractors to determine if the contractors have recognised Health and Safety standards and compliances. It assists in the process of selecting, engaging and managing contractors to ensure they have good systems to identify and manage risks and the capability to work safely.
The Department of Labour have recently clarified that prequalification is one of the key steps in good contractor management.
The prequalification process required the submission of CrestClean’s Health, Safety and Environmental Management systems and evidence supporting its implementation for review.
CrestClean was able to demonstrate that we understand our legal obligations under health and safety law and have systems in place to ensure we can work safely, protecting our own personnel, our customers’ staff and the public.
CrestClean has recently revised its internal Management Systems in regards to Health and Safety and Environmental and Sustainability Management. As a result, it has now created an Integrated Management System titled “CrestClean’s HSEMS”.
CrestClean’s HSEMS has been designed to comply with ASNZ: 4801, ISO: 14001, CPNZ and ACC WSMP Tertiary Level certification requirements and provides a robust framework for the Company to effectively manage its responsibilities as a ‘Corporate Citizen’ and run a safe and effective operation. The framework focuses on industry leadership, continuous improvement and management of ‘best practice’ processes.
