With a staffing team of about 350 people and over 270 external contracting companies to manage, the challenge for PANSW lay in the risk of having contractors on site who were not compliant and therefore did not know what the safety procedures and their reporting obligations were. A better system was needed to manage the 5000 contractors who could otherwise be working while non-compliant, thereby potentially jeopardising not only their own safety but also the safety of those around them.
One of the other challenges lay in the fact that security personnel had to check that site inductions had been completed prior to letting contractors on site. This was completed using an induction card, which resulted in the difficult task of distributing them to contractors.
“Security personnel had to ensure completion of site induction prior to letting them on to the site, and it was a difficult task to distribute the cards to the contractors.”

A system was therefore needed to aid PANSW in better managing their contracting companies in terms of both documentation and ensuring on site compliance.
