Valley Water is committed to minimizing risk to the public, contractors, and Valley Water employees by contracting only with businesses whose safety programs meet Valley Water standards. Vendors who bid on work that involves certain high risk activities will be required to complete and submit a Contractor Safety Qualification Packet. Work activities that trigger this requirement include construction, maintenance, and other activities with associated life safety critical tasks or operations, such as assembly and use of scaffolding, lockout/tagout, confined space entry, working at elevated locations, live electrical work, excavation or trenching, tunneling, hot work, or any other activity that requires specialized training to prevent serious injury or a catastrophic event. The Contractor Safety Qualification Packet will be included in the solicitation documents for each project as required. Questions about safety requirements should be addressed with the district’s Environmental Health and Safety Manager at 408-630-2812.
