What is ASSENTRIX doing differently?
We know NZ deserves a simple, effective tool that honours global best practice and also honours the local decision making that comes with engaging a contractor or supplier based on experience.
ASSENTRIX prequalification recognises international standards, client or industry requirements and allows for demonstration of good safety practices in more non-traditional methods (like referrals, endorsements, awards, or explanations of non-traditional approaches to management) for activities where risks are not high and resources might be scarce.
Most importantly, ASSENTRIX makes the prequal process simple and effective while keeping the final decision a local decision, not one based on formulas.

What the Independent Taskforce on Workplace Health & Safety said:
“We consider that all firms, as a matter of best practice, should have fit-for-purpose health and safety management systems. It is important to be mindful that what is fit for purpose for SMEs and low-risk industries is likely to be at a much lower level of formality than what is fit for purpose for larger businesses and high-risk industries.”
“Workplace health and safety presents challenges for SMEs that are different from those for other businesses. SMEs are traditionally characterised as (a) being managed by the owners in a personalised (non-formal) manner, (b) having high resource constraints… (c) having limited access to external sources of advice and support… (d) lacking formal systems and processes that are fit for purpose and proportionate to the risks the SMEs face.”Read the Full Report here
