Contractor Safety and Environment Prequalification
Contractors who will be engaged to perform works and/or services on Queensland Rail owned or leased property that are categorised at Category 1, 2 or 3 will need to successfully complete Safety and Environment Prequalification.
Based on the Works to be undertaken, the Safety and Environment Pre-qualification categorisation that will apply for the Cathodic Protection for Three Steel Bridges is Category 1.
- category 1 contractors, which is for contractors Queensland Rail appoints as Principal Contractors. Contractors that are entered on the Category 1 Register will prequalify for works that fall under categories 2 and 3 as well.
The validity of the prequalification is two (2) years and may be extended under certain conditions.
The submission of the questionnaire to Queensland Rail does not prequalify a respondent. Safety and Environment Prequalification involves a desktop level assessment of respondent’s safety and environment processes to meet Queensland Rail minimum expectations. Only respondents that are assessed to have met the requirements of the Safety and Environment Prequalification will prequalify.
Further information, including the questionnaire, is available on the Contracting to Queensland Rail website: https://www.queenslandrail.com.au/forbusiness/contractors.
