Why do I need Health and Safety Tendering Support?
There is a growing requirement for organisations to be able to demonstrate their health and safety competence before being awarded orders, being admitted to, or being allowed to remain on tender lists. Schemes such as the Contractor Health and Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS) and Construction Line have been developed so that companies can be assessed against a set of pre-determined performance standards. Failure to achieve recognised accreditation or approval can lead to a loss of business and exclusion from new business operations.
Many companies struggle to successfully complete application forms and provide supporting documentation. Wilby Risk Management’s experienced consultants can take the pressure out of the application process.
Increasingly, contractors need to show clients and others that they have basic health and safety capabilities. Successful pre-qualification can be a very effective “licence to do business” in your industry sector. It can provide a competitive advantage in a tough commercial environment and help to open up new areas of opportunity. This allows for concentration on the Stage 2 (project or job specific) tasks of ensuring that suppliers have: specific experience in the type of work that they will be contracted to do, that they have trained staff, and that they have the resources to meet the client’s needs.
Wilby risk management consultants are able to assist you in the preparation and submission of recognised pre-qualification schemes such as those who are affiliated with the SSiP (Safety Schemes in Procurement) initiative
Wilby Risk Management health and safety consultants are experienced in assessing contractor questionnaires and can offer comprehensive advice to clients when completing tender or SSiP affiliated pre-qualification questionnaires.
