                        How to ace the plant and equipment requirements of an OFSC audit

                        How to ace the plant and equipment requirements of an OFSC audit

                        The Office of the Federal Safety Commissioner (OFSC) was set up in 2005 to foster excellence in work health and safety on Australian construction projects.

                        Whilst the accreditation scheme and its administrators have been subject to some criticism, it is fair to say that the OFSC has been the catalyst of a genuinely dramatic improvement in construction project safety since its inception.

                        To become accredited under the scheme, companies need to illustrate the existence and implementation of an exemplary safety management system. The OFSC has issued audit criteria and guidance to assist applicants understand what success looks like for these systems.

                        Anyone who has been through an OFSC audit will attest to the fact that they are rigorous, and that it is difficult to satisfy the audit criteria.

                        Plant Assessor responded early to the requirements of the OFSC and the scheme by enhancing its plant risk assessments and developing new functionality to meet difficult requirements relating to the management of sub-contractor plant.

                        As a result of this, Plant Assessor is now being successfully used by many accredited entities to fly through the plant related requirements of an OFSC audit.  The table below shows the relevant OFSC requirements that Plant Assessor meets. 


                        Whilst it has required constant investment in development and intellectual property, we are delighted that our OFSC accredited clients are finding that Plant Assessor meets the plant centric requirements of OFSC audits so well.

                        Here at Plant Assessor we’re always keen to help people simplify and reduce the stress of managing plant professionally and diligently, so whether you are going through an OFSC audit, or just want to go digital and save time and money, please contact us to see how we can help.
