About LASS 

Since 2016 SHE PreQual have teamed with Waikato and Bay of Plenty Councils to streamline the Contractor pre-qualification process.

The system will be made available to all participating councils to pre-qualify contractors.  This will ensure Councils are using contractors who operate with effective health and safety management systems and are holding current and relevant insurances.

This system will help the councils meet their responsibilities to ensure that contractors, working for or on Council assets and/or supplying services, have effective health and safety management systems to prevent harm to people and the environment or damage to property.


Benefits to contractors include:

  • Easier system that will enable contractors to be pre-qualified for multiple Councils through the one process
  • Improved relationships between contractors and Council
  • Contributing to the WorkSafe New Zealand’s Statement of Intent strategy to reduce injuries by 2020.
  • This process requires contractors and sub-contractors who carry out services for (participating) Councils, to apply to become pre-qualified every two years, with insurance renewals conducted annually.  Should these expire in the system, Councils will not allow you to carry out work for them until renewals are received. 


The fees (paid online) for a SHE PreQual LASS are:

Number of employees 2 Year Cost (GST exclusive)
Small (<5 employees) $280
Medium (5-24 employees) $525
Large (25 and more) $1025
