2.2 – Contractor Pre-Qualification


As prime contractor we are committed to ensuring the safety of everyone involved in the project. The always evolving safety standards of BC require that your safety program meets the minimum requirements of WorkSafeBC. Please complete the Contractor Pre-Qualification form. If you don’t have a safety program in place, we will need to make arrangements to include you in our safety program.

Prime Contractor

If there are 2 or more employers involved in work at a work site at the same time, there must be a “prime contractor”. The prime contractor for a work site is:

  • The contractor, employer or other person who enters into an agreement with the owner of the work site to be the prime contractor, or
  • If no agreement has been made or is in force, the owner of the work site.

The prime contractor, as far as it is reasonably practicable to do so, must ensure that the Occupational Health & Safety Act, Regulation and Code are complied with.

The Occupational Health and Safety Act does not require the prime contractor to be present at the work site. It does require the prime contractor to have a system in place to ensure, as reasonably practicable, compliance with the OH&S Act, Regulation and Code.

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

As a prospective Sub Contractor for Griffin Properties Ltd., it is our responsibility to ensure that your safety program meets the minimum requirements of WorkSafeBC and/or any other governing body as well as conforms to our Owner/Client specifications. 

Please complete the following questionnaire and return it to our office for review.  Once the review process is completed and your tender has been accepted, your safety manual is to be sent on a zip file to our office for review.
