For Schweppes Australia, the technology introduced to manage workplace induction training and the contractor compliance information and documentation has transformed their processes from a heavily manual and time consuming one to an auditable and robust system.
“Rapid Induct and Rapid Contractor Management are proven systems and can be tailored to the way our company operates. With emails and reminders being automatically sent to contractors, as well as tracking of insurance expiry dates and right up to ID swipe cards….you can’t get more technologically advanced than that!”
Schweppes Australia continues to supplement the online induction with face to face training by providing a site orientation walk around upon the worker’s arrival.
“The online induction through Rapid Induct saves time and resources for our business. The face to face orientation is a reinforcement of the information provided to the worker and backs up the online training.”
During normal operations and when needed, management will use the online induction system to request contractors resit the safety induction. This occurs in situations where further education is deemed necessary on important safety issues such as the policies regarding the use of the mobile phone whilst driving.
Contractor compliance levels are much higher and the business as a whole has been able to reduce the risk of engaging non-compliant contractors. With Rapid Contractor Management collecting and storing insurance information, the business now is confident of all contractor insurance information being tracked. Expiring insurance certificates trigger alerts in the system and email notifications are sent to the contractor to alert them to action and update their insurance information.
The latest phase of roll out for Schweppes Australia has been the Rapid Visitor Access System at the Laverton Victoria site. This touchscreen sign in / sign out system is able to alert host employees when their visitor arrives, provides the Site Manager with an evacuation list and logs all site visitor information.
“Knowing who is on site and when they arrived is a big benefit for the business especially in managing emergency evacuations.”
