There is a cost for an onsite assessment, which is determined by the assessors and depends on the scope of the assessment that you agree with them. The fee is a commercial matter between assessors and clients, similar to hiring any health and safety consultancy services.

Accreditation process

An accreditation process ensures that assessors have the right training and competency levels to deliver a behavioural assessment using the toolkit. The following documents provide more information on how it works:

SafePlus accreditation process (PDF 24 KB)

Assessor competency specification (PDF 3.8 MB)

Questions and answers

A comprehensive set of questions has been developed about the role of an assessor, for prospective and accredited assessors.

Costs

If you are considering applying to become a SafePlus Assessor, please be aware of the accreditation fees below:

  • Total assessor accreditation process fee is $1,720.00 plus GST. These costs fund the desk-based and face-to-face competency assessments.
  • Renewal and reaccreditation occurs every three years and the fee is $800.00 plus GST.
  • A mandatory training course takes place over three days at a cost of $1720.00 plus GST per person (minimum 8 people).

If applicants meet the required competency requirements, they will have to complete SafePlus training before they can be granted accreditation to deliver a behavioural and evaluative assessment.

How to apply

If you’re interested in becoming an accredited assessor, please email info@tracecare.co.nz with the following information. Tracecare, the accreditation body, will email you an acknowledgement and provide you with an application pack.

  • Name
  • Email
  • Phone

The Onsite Assessment and Advisory Service is not a traditional conformance product, such as a paper-based audit of a business’s compliance with health and safety legislation or management or quality assurance standards.  People with predominately compliance audit backgrounds may not necessarily be preferred candidates, because of the behavioural and evaluative assessment approach that will need to be applied when using the SafePlus Tool. It is important to understand this distinction when considering your application form.

Protecting your privacy

 As part of your application to become an accredited assessor, Tracecare will obtain personal information from you, including information about your name, qualifications, experience, and association membership. They collect your personal information so that your application for accreditation can be assessed and decided.

Your personal information will be provided to and held securely by Tracecare Limited, which is the accreditation body appointed to make accreditation decisions.

Providing this information is optional. If you choose not to provide the personal information requested, Tracecare will be unable to assess and process your application for accreditation.

You have the right to ask for a copy of any personal information held about you, and to ask for it to be corrected if you think it is wrong.
