Contractor Information

New Plymouth District Council is committed to providing a healthy and safe working environment for our workers and other stakeholders that come into contact with us and our activities. We are committed to doing all we can to ensure our contractors and subcontractors are safe and healthy whilst undertaking work on our behalf.

As a contractor, you will need to be able to demonstrate that you understand your duties under the HSWA Act and that you have process and procedures in place to manage work safely for your own staff, your subcontractors, and also council employees who may work along side you.

Pre-qualification allows us (New Plymouth District Council) to understand how your business works, and allows you to understand our expectations with regard to Health and Safety at work

To complete the pre-qualification process please follow the link below and create your company account. For further information on this process please see the system quick guide, available as a download from this page.

If you have any further queries, please don’t hesitate to contact one of the Health and Safety team on 06-759 6060.
