bizSAFE Certification --- bizSAFE is a programme that promotes workplace safety and health through the recognition of the organisation's safety efforts. With effect from 01 April 2014, all new contracts & contractors involved in SP engineering construction and building operations works must meet the minimum bizSAFE Level 4 certification & safety requirements.
From 01 Oct 2021, the bizSAFE entry requirement shall be raised from bizSAFE Level 4 to bizSAFE Star. This shall apply to all Main Contractors participating in tenders advertised on or after 01 Oct 2021.
The bizSAFE entry requirement for all sub-contractors will also be raised from bizSAFE Level 4 to bizSAFE Star from 01 Oct 2022. This will allow additional time for sub-contractors to conform.
Note: This does not apply to cable jointing or termination carried out by free-lance cable jointers; Ancillary work such as cable detection, survey works and third-party inspection works; Power turn-on by Licenced Electrical Worker; Supply and delivery; IT-related works (that does not involve electrical installation); and Consultancy services.
Debarment Policy --- SP will only work with responsible contractors/suppliers. To protect stakeholders’ interest, SP will debar contractors/suppliers for criminal offences, ethics violations, poor performance, withdrawal of tenders and other serious contractual non-compliances. Debarred contractors will not be allowed to participate in any SP tenders during the debarment period. The debarment period typically ranges from 1 to 5 years, depending on the severity of the contractor/supplier infringements. At the end of the debarment period, debarred contractors/suppliers can apply to our Procurement branch to be qualified as an eligible tenderer again. The applications are subject to our approval.
