Tōtika - cross-recognition for Health and Safety pre-qualification in New Zealand


Pre-qualification and assessment of health and safety is an important part of the procurement process. Before Tōtika, there was no common standard for pre-qualification resulting in many proprietary and internal pre-qualification schemes. Creating inefficiency in the supply chain because suppliers had to repeatedly pre-qualify against different schemes and standards. This repeated and duplicated effort wastes time and money for both clients and contractors. There is a strong desire within the industry alike for a common pre-qualification standard and streamlined pre-qualification process; Tōtika has been developed to deliver these outcomes.

What is Tōtika? It creates a fair and equitable scheme with the objective that suppliers only need to pre-qualify ONCE instead of duplicating effort for each new client and opportunity through:

  • One universal standard – which provides a single source and a common view for H&S pre-qualification
  • One cross recognition framework – that recognises external audits of suppliers as an alternative
  • External assessment and certificate schemes – through recognition of ISO 45001 certification, SafePlus On-Site Assessments and Q-Safe certification
  • It is an evolution – it is the next step to streamlining H&S pre-qualification criteria for procurement purposes

What it isn't. Tōtika is not just another pre-qualification system, it is a single framework that brings all health and safety pre-qualifications together under one umbrella to make the process cheaper and quicker for everyone. Tōtika does not absolve a buyers/clients responsibility for health and safety, nor does it guarantee any supplier capability of doing a job. Tōtika is not for profit and so any surplus after costs will be used for the benefit of industry.
