Health & Safety

Southland District Council is committed to the health and safety of the public, our staff and contractors. Council must ensure it meets its obligations in regards to the relevant health and safety legislation and also that any organisation or contractor working on or in the vicinity of council managed sites is doing the same.

Southland District Council has an approved health and safety contractor list. To be included on this list contractors must provide Council with health and safety documentation and/or return the applicable forms to demonstrate understanding and compliance with current health and safety regulations. 

The approval process is not a guarantee of work, however it may provide the contractor with an advantage in the selection process because they have already met Council's prerequisite health and safety expectations. A contractor's approval status is typically valid for one year (subject to their performance).
