More stringent safety requirements and new measures in Government construction tenders
For companies participating in Government Procurement Entities’ (GPEs) construction and construction-related tenders.
More details will be announced after further consultation.
Possible safety requirements and new measures may include:
- Establishing a set of harmonised workplace safety and health (WSH) criteria for public construction and construction-related projects such as to extend the Safety Disqualification Framework to ensure that only contractors with a minimum safety performance can participate in tenders.
- Requiring a minimum safety weightage for tender evaluation of public construction and construction related projects.
- Introducing additional WSH requirements for public construction projects above a certain Estimated Procurement Value
- Introducing a WSH bonus scheme to incentivise good safety performance.
