Contractor Health and Safety

At DeRisk NZ, we understand the unique safety challenges faced by businesses engaging contractors, as a contractor or sole trader in the workplace. Our Contractor Health and Safety Services are designed to help you navigate the complexities of health and safety compliance and ensure the well-being of your business and its workers. If you’re a contractor and have to complete “pre-qualification” for a job you’re doing or work you’re looking at, we are able to turn this into a straightforward, repeatable process for you. We are experienced in helping all sized contractors from one-person businesses to those with large numbers of workers, with a range of different pre-qualification systems, including Totika, SHE Pre-Qual, Avetta Pre-Qual, IMPAC Pre-Qual, and Qualify365.
