PREQUAL combines the experience and expertise of some of New Zealand’s leading Health & Safety Practitioners to provide a effective and affordable cross industry contractor pre-qualification service.
Safety in Design
RDT Pacific takes safety very seriously, both in our workplace and on the projects we manage. We employ a proactive best practice approach to assisting in the implementation of the Contractor’s and Client’s obligations under the Health & Safety Act and associated policies.
Before the project reaches the site we have already undertaken ‘Safety in Design’ workshops and discussed issues with our Client and their Facility Management teams to capture safety issues early in the design phase of the project. Prior to construction RDT Pacific works closely with the engaged Contractor to review the major construction and buildability issues from a safety perspective and highlight areas of key construction risk.
Corporate Social Responsibility
RDT Pacific has always been committed to conducting business in an ethical and sustainable way. We are committed to making a positive difference across New Zealand, in our communities and at the national level. RDT Pacific supports a range of educational, environmental and low socioeconomic programs, through monetary donations and volunteering.
Below are some examples.
