Contractor Prequalification Questionnaire and contractor insurance

Developing a Contractor Prequalification Questionnaire

Streamline your onboarding process

One of the biggest challenges for any business engaging contractors is managing the endless paperwork, verifying compliance documentation, and ensuring licences and certifications remain current.

An online Contractor Management System with prequalification can help to streamline the contractor onboarding process, reduce the time taken to prequalify contractors, validate certifications, and automate licence renewals.

What is Contractor Prequalification?

Prequalifying contractors is a pre-approval process that enables contractors to submit their business details, licences and certifications, insurance documentation and risk management policies and procedures before being engaged in a workplace or worksite.

The contractor prequalification process enables you, as the person conducting a business or undertaking (PCBU or employer), to assess whether a contractor meets your own workplace requirements while also ensuring they’re compliant with any relevant laws and regulations for the profession or industry.

Developing your Contractor Prequalification Questionnaire

A Contractor Prequalification Questionnaire can help you to ask the right questions and solicit the appropriate documentation from prospective contractors before they step on site.

Information can include:

  • Company details
  • Financial status, including GST registration
  • Details of insurance cover and value – e.g. public liability, professional indemnity
  • Work Health and Safety (WHS) policies and procedures
  • Risk assessment documentation or Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS)
  • Tools, plant and equipment – registrations, insurances, licences
  • Quality assurance policies and procedures
  • Environmental management policy
  • Competencies related to the role or worksite
