High Risk Contractors
High risk contractors are defined as such, based on the type of work they carry out as well as at the discretion of the client who engages them. Typical activities include, though are not limited to the following:
Construction work of any kind
All electrical work (excludes replacement of lamps in light fittings)
Working at heights
Transport (truck driving)
Process for engagement
The procurement process for engaging High-Risk contractors can be both complex and time-consuming depending on the industry and the requirements of the client. To streamline this process, clients use BNG Conserve™ to pre-qualify their contractors prior to engaging their services.
It allows them to have a competent and compliant pool of contractors for them to use as needed. This process is mutually beneficial as contractors are able to demonstrate their qualifications and safe systems of work to current and potential clients.
Meeting client requirements
Pre-qualification ensures you have the appropriate qualifications, tickets, licences, safety processes as well as the appropriate level of insurance cover for the services the client needs.
Contractors are required to provide this information based on a client’s requirements, for validation by the Conserve™ Specialist Support Team. It is vitally important to clients that the contractors they engage comply with industry standard safety systems. Once approved, contractors will be added to the client’s approved list.
Some of the benefits of being a pre-qualified contractor are:
Conserve’s™ endorsement as pre-qualified
Shortening the timeframe for tender or quote response
Ongoing support from the BNG Conserve™ Specialist Support team to ensure contractor information remains current
Compliance with client procurement criteria - giving greater protection to contractors
