SiteWise is designed to help you when you are tendering for contract work. It means that instead of collating your health and safety information for each tender you complete, you do it once a year in SiteWise. This will save you both time and money.
As a subcontractor (Level 3 user) in SiteWise you will be able to:
- Obtain a snapshot of your health and safety system performance
- Save time by creating just the one health and safety document for tendering
- Receive feedback from professional health and safety assessors
- Use SiteWise as a framework for improvement in health and safety performance
How does SiteWise work?
Most businesses join SiteWise because a main contractor or other principal organisation has asked them to prequalify their health and safety practices through the SiteWise system, but it can be a good idea to join up before being asked.
Businesses (contractors or subcontractors) wishing to be considered for tenders complete an annual questionnaire on their health and safety systems, including:
- Health and safety accreditation programmes (such as ACC’s Workplace Safety Discount or Workplace Safety Management Practices)
- Site Specific Safety Plans
- Accident/incident reporting and investigation
- Hazard Management
- Employee and subcontractor engagement
- Health monitoring and performance.
The questionnaires are assessed by Site Safe’s qualified health and safety professionals. Your assessment results are graded (green, amber, red) and a detailed report is provided privately to you and the principal/main contractor, along with suggestions for improvement if required.
Once you have set up your account you will be directed to your SiteWise assessment. This process involves 12 questions which you will select your answer and then upload evidence to support this. This assessment is completed each year to demonstrate that health and safety systems are in place and being used. To view the questions, visit our assessment help page.
SiteWise is an affordable annual fee that includes unlimited user logins and a set fee regardless of the size of your business. Visit our pricing page to see the options available.
