Home>Council encourages more suppliers to use SiteWise
Council began using SiteWise in March 2023 to assess the health and safety capabilities of suppliers and would like more suppliers to use the SiteWise accreditation system.
All suppliers that do physical work for Council or do work where health and safety risk is higher than would normally be present in a typical workplace are required to be accredited for health and safety. SiteWise is now Council’s preferred health and safety accreditation system.
To become accredited with SiteWise, suppliers must complete a 12-step questionnaire which is reviewed by a qualified team of health and safety practitioners. The supplier is awarded a score which is published on the SiteWise contractor database. Any principal organisation signed up to use SiteWise can access the score.
This process enables easier tendering and better-informed supplier selection and helps with onboarding of new suppliers.
143 of Council’s current suppliers have already been accredited with SiteWise with an average score of 81%, and more have started their accreditation process.
