Not sure how to procure your height safety system or equipment?

Purchasing a height safety system or equipment journey can be daunting. Should you go Australian-made, look to an overseas manufacturer, or simply the cheapest option? How do you assess solutions and providers against each other, and what red flags are you supposed to be looking for?

Then there’s compliance: how do you know what’s compliant with the right standards? And what are the right standards? Then there’s understanding what technical knowledge and certifications your provider or installer require for the height safety system you need.

Implementing a height safety solution doesn’t need to be a stressful experience. Our certified experts can be with you each step of the way, providing advice on solutions and brands to height safety system providers and installers. Giving you confidence you’re getting the right provider at the right price – with the highest quality possible – while meeting your compliance and safety needs.

How to pick the right solution for your needs

Choosing a height safety system is more than identifying a height safety system that will ‘do the job’. Your solution should take into consideration what tasks will be performed, its placement as well as how often it’s used and by who. While out-of-the-box solutions may be cheaper, it could need modifications to be compliant and safe. Resulting in additional costs, disruptions and delays, and even then you may not get what you need.

By seeking independent advice before you purchase, you can be confident your solution is fit-for-purpose, safe and compliant. With in-depth industry knowledge, our certified height safety experts can advise on the right solution for your application. We can also provide a full risk assessment to provide you with all the information you need to make an informed decision and start your tender process.

Our height safety procurement support services

With so many products, providers and installers in the market, it can be confusing to know what’s right for you. And without in-house expertise it can be difficult to compare height safety systems, assess solution tender bids, or answer technical system or installation questions.

Our height safety procurement support service gives you direct access to our certified height safety experts, giving you expert advice for your solution. From advice on which solution providers to approach and what solution you should purchase, to tender document creation and bid assessments. We can be where you need us most, helping you identify the right solution for you, at the right price and in line with your requirements.

Solution provider recommendations

From different brands, providers, installers and solutions, it’s hard to know where to start when purchasing your height safety solution. Especially when you don’t have experience with a height safety system, or you’re not sure what specifications should be provided to potential installers to ensure you get what you need.

Through our hands-on experience and industry knowledge, we know the best (and highest quality) solutions and groups in the business. Our certified experts can advise on a solution specific to your application, budget and requirements, guiding you to the right provider for your needs. We can also provide specifications and requirements to pass straight onto your chosen provider.

Tender document development

Getting the right solutions provider to bid on your tender starts with the a solid, and detailed, tender document. Without specific height safety system specifications and project requirements, you may end up with a provider that cannot fulfil your needs. The result? Out-of-scope costs, a solution that doesn’t meet your requirements, increased risks, or an incomplete project.

We can help you create a tailored tender document for your chosen solution providers, ensuring you get the right people for the job. Our expert risk assessments can also provide you with solution recommendations, a scope of work and layout plans to ensure your requirements are clear.

Technical and expert support

Don’t have an in-house expert? Our experts can be on hand to answer any technical questions you may have about your height safety system, solution requirements, equipment or installation recommendations.

We can even be your tender technical contact, answering tender bidders’ questions so you don’t have to. Our certified experts can also be on hand to answer any questions you may have. The result? A better tender submission that meets your project and solution requirements as well as compliance needs. And no nasty surprises, such as a height safety system that isn’t fit-for-purpose or comes with multiple compliance issues you have to address.

Tender submission reviews and schedules

Reviewing tender bids can be a time-consuming process, especially if you don’t have the technical knowledge or background to assess each provider and solution specifications. What should you focus on, what are the red flags, and what assessment criteria should you use? You may also have a procurement process that requires independent advice before a solution or provider can be approved.

We can review your tender bids, providing independent expert advice on providers based on cost, delivery expectations, solution requirements and experience. We can also review their accreditations, ensuring they have the right certifications and experience to complete the job safely and in line with compliance requirements.

Feeling overwhelmed by the procurement process?

Our expert team can guide you through the process and be by your side, step by step. From finding the right provider to assessing tender submissions and installations.

Quality Control: Make sure your installation is done right the first time

Would you be able to spot if your height safety system was installed incorrectly or was non-compliant? While the system may be safe, how it’s been installed may not meet Australian standards and industry regulations. As well as resulting in additional costs, service providers can refuse to perform maintenance if your height safety system is non-compliant.

To ensure your height safety solution is installed right the first time, we can advise on compliance requirements as well as certified installers for your system. Our independent installation quality control service can also ensure your installation is completed to the highest specifications for a safe, compliant and waterproof height safety system.
