Contractor & plant compliance solution for $1.6bn joint venture

The NEXUS Delivery JV between Acciona & Ferrovial engaged Comply Flow in 2015 in a partnership to manage the safety and compliance of all suppliers, workers, plant, equipment and hazardous chemicals coming onto the 41km road bypass-route Toowoomba Second Range Crossing project.

  • 10,000+ workers
  • 6,500+ plant & equipment items
  • 350+ hazardous chemicals
  • Multiple FSC audits

The Problem

NEXUS engaged Comply Flow in 2015 to deliver a comprehensive, end-to-end system for managing contractor compliance, competencies, plant and equipment. Specifically, they sought to relieve the administrative burden of record management for a high volume of workers, plant & equipment and hazardous chemicals across the lifetime of the project, as well as ensure that safety managers across the project could quickly access the information they needed from one central database.

The Solution

Comply Flow worked with the project team to define compliance requirements, including the specific requirements each supplier (company), worker and plant or equipment item would need to meet in order to achieve a 'compliant' status in the system. Requirements were deteremined on the level of supplier risk, type of work undertaken by the worker, or plant & equipment operated, with additional project-specific requirements pushed to all workers on a project.

Moreover, an accurate and up-to-date record trail of all compliance-related activities was enormously valuable to the project teams for both FSC and project-lead audits, with one system login able to cover multiple evidence areas of safe contractor management and compliance .
