The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations, 2007 and the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act, 1974, requires McAleer & Rushe Ltd to manage and co-ordinate the activities of our contractors in the interests of health and safety.

To achieve this we undertake effective selection, monitoring, and review procedures, ensuring only competent and adequately resourced contractors are approved to work with us.

The appointment of contractors will be on their ability to safely meet the requirements of the contract, giving due consideration to quality, environmental performance, programme, and budget.

McAleer & Rushe Ltd also sets appropriate training standards for its contractors with particular reference to the operation of mobile plant, working at heights and other identified high risk tasks.

All sub-contractors that wish to be on McAleer & Rushe’s preferred contractor list must complete our M054 SHEQ questionnaire in full. This questionnaire is designed to help McAleer & Rushe Ltd assess the Health, Safety, Quality & Environmental standards that its approved sub-contractors are achieving.

The questionnaire should be submitted along with the required supporting documents to the SHEQ Department via an email to Emails should be submitted with the name of the project you are interested in tendering for in the ‘Subject’ field. It may be necessary to split a large email with attachments into multiple smaller emails to ensure they are not rejected by the email server.

We also require the following documentation to be attached to the email.
