Liberty Industrial has been awarded Office of the Federal Safety Commissioner Accreditation
20 December 2017 – Liberty Industrial has achieved accreditation under the Australian Government Building and Construction WHS Accreditation Scheme.
One of only a handful of major demolition and remediation contractors to attain accreditation under the scheme, Liberty Industrial achieved certification following a rigorous audit of the company’s management systems.
The scheme represents a higher standard to Occupational Health and Safety AS 4801 accreditation, with criteria more specifically related to the building and construction industry. It enables the Australian Government to use its influence as a provider of capital to improve occupational health and safety industry standards in the building and construction industry.
Only companies accredited under the scheme can enter into principal contracts for construction work funded by the Australian Government with a value of $4 million or more. Liberty Industrial will now be eligible to tender for and undertake these high value, federally funded head contracts.
Liberty Industrial Director Clinton Dick said that accreditation provides an opportunity to strengthen our business relationship with the Australian Government. “We look forward to exploring potential new business development opportunities with the Australian Government, and continuing to work with them in an increased capacity.”
Fellow Director Simon Gill praised those involved. “Well done to our leadership and project delivery teams for their commitment to best practice and continuous improvement in the development and implementation of our systems.”
“Not only does the accreditation provide us with access to high-value government-funded work, it provides the greater benefit of industry leading standards. The accreditation will give Liberty Industrial’s clients and stakeholders assurance of our world-class management systems.”
